The Residents COVID-19 Resource Guide

For the last few weeks, daily schedules have been interrupted and hours of operation has changed drastically for most businesses. As students, these changing times can be overwhelming and maybe a little confusing too. We’ve done the work for you to compile a list of resources and businesses in and around campus that are providing support for students.  

Remember that the CDC and the City of Edmond have put in place guidelines to follow to insure the health and safety of you and your neighbors. If you are unclear what this entails, visit the City of Edmond’s website for information about COVID-19 guidelines in the city. 

For updates on Housing processes, resources, and tips during this time, visit the Housing Coronavirus Response page.  

Information about campus updates and resources are maintained at the University Coronavirus Response page.  

Dining Resources 

Ayers Kitchen is still serving meals in single use to-go containers, with a new Pop-up Market now available with a variety of snacks and beverages available for purchase.
