University Privileges in Retirement

Retiring doesn’t have to mean that you leave OU behind. We hope that you’ll still be involved with campus activities, enjoy fine arts performances, use the fitness facilities, and so much more. Here are some of the campus perks you can enjoy as an OU retiree. 

OU Retiree ID Card: 
Get your official OU retiree ID card by presenting your retiree letter at your campus ID card office.

  • HSC Retirees: Go to the OneCard office located at 865 Research Park, Suite 240.
  • Norman Retirees: Go to the Sooner Card office in the Union.
  • Tulsa Retirees: Go to Enrollment and Financial Services, Room 1C110.

Parking: Get your free faculty/staff retiree permit by taking your retiree letter to the Parking Office. The permit allows you to use any faculty/staff lot on campus and does not need to be renewed.

Athletics Tickets: As long as you reside in the state of Oklahoma, you are entitled to purchase tickets to athletic events at a reduced rate.

Library: Use your OU retiree ID card for free use of all university libraries including Bizzell Memorial in Norman, Robert M. Bird Health Sciences Library at HSC, and the Schusterman Library in Tulsa.

Course Enrollment: Retirees who were benefits-eligible at the time of retirement may use the Employee Tuition Waiver. For more information, contact your campus Bursar’s Office.

HSC Faculty House: HSC retirees will remain eligible for membership at this dining club. The University Club restaurant in Norman no longer requires a membership.

Employee Seminars or Functions: You may attend any university function open to employees such as development workshops on the Training Calendar or events on the OU Calendar.

Recreational Facilities: Contact your campus fitness center to find out what kind of discount you receive on membership. The university Golf Course in Norman gives retirees a discount on posted membership fees and posted green fees.
