OSU-Tulsa University Police

Main Hall 1401
Emergency Number: 918-594-8123
Non-Emergency Number: 918-594-8124

OSU-Tulsa University Police Officers are CLEET-certified and there is an officer on duty 24-7.

They are here to help! Don't hesitate to ask an officer for help walking you to your car, getting your keys out of your locked car (we've all had those days) or even jumping your car battery.

OSU-Tulsa experiences a consistently low crime rate and each year the University Police prepare a Public Safety Guide and Annual Crime Report. This helps with promoting crime awareness, campus safety and security.

Additional Tips

We know most of you are here at night, so make sure to keep your belongings safe and be aware of your surroundings as well.

After parking, make sure your car is locked and carry your car keys with you so you aren't lingering in the parking lot looking for keys in the bottom of your bag.

Saw something that just didn't sit well with you and think you should speak up?

  • If you witness a crime in progress, make sure to call 911.
  • If you notice that a crime has already happened, you can file a police report with the OSU-Tulsa University Police.
  • If you wish to remain anonymous, you can report the incident by filling out a Silent Witness Form.

And remember...

Hope you pokes stay safe!
