Take a look at the beautiful 263-acre campus of Oral Roberts University.
Student-led prayer and worship fill this space every week, and this, along with global
mission trips, local outreach, and campus worship, helps our students generate an
active and vibrant spiritual life on campus! Designed to look like a modern-day cross,
the Prayer Tower is an architectural work of art that was strategically built in the
center of campus to symbolize the importance of prayer.
Global Learning Center
ORU’s award-winning Global Learning Center (GLC) reaches the world, and allows the
world to reach ORU, through cutting-edge technology. Students walk through their subject
matter using virtual and augmented reality, and now have the unique ability to see
what they are studying from every possible angle. They can dissect a heart, assemble
an engine and visit anywhere in the world with a click of a button. The GLC also enables
professors to live-stream classes across the globe bringing both interactive lectures
to students around the world, and guest lectures in real-time to ORU.
The GLC is also home to the 740-seat Lippencott Auditorium, a state-of-the-art television
studio, an augmented reality lab, technology driven classrooms and collaborative work
The “GC” or Graduate Center, is an immense 677,000 square foot facility styled after
King Solomon’s Temple. As the main learning facility on campus, this seven-floor complex
contains classrooms, labs, academic department offices and resources like the Registrar’s
office and Financial Aid. With over 80 undergraduate degree options spanning every
interest, online learning options and a range of graduate programs, there's something
for everyone and every plan.
Armand Hammer Alumni-Student Center
Dubbed the “Hammer Center” by students, it’s the hub for food, fun and fellowship
and the home of ORU’s Student Association and Alumni and Development offices. There’s
no end to what you can do at the Hammer—work on homework; play video games, pool,
ping pong or air hockey; reserve a study room; or even nestle up next to the fireplace
with a burrito from Moe’s Southwest grill or coffee from Jazzman’s. It’s also home
to one of the largest televisions in Oklahoma.
A local landmark and top tourist attraction for Oklahoma, the Praying Hands are also
the main entrance to ORU’s campus. Originally called “The Healing Hands,” this 60
foot, 30-ton sculpture originally resided in front of the City of Faith Medical and
Research Center to symbolize when faith and medicine fuse to bring God's healing.
Today it stands in front of ORU as the “Praying Hands”—encircled by dozens of flags
that honor our global community of students from all over the world!
