We strive to make your campus housing experience the best it can be. This is a page of information that will help you get the specific assistance you need in resolving any issue you may have with your room, apartment or building. Please select a topic below:

Cable Television Issues

COX CABLE – Television Service

Under FCC mandates, Cox Communications was required to convert all of their service to digital signals. In order to receive the digital signal and the provided channels they are offering, every cable outlet on campus has a converter box installed.

If you did not receive a remote control at check-in, you may check one out from your building’s department assistant or RA, or in the Norman Village Clubhouse (apartment residents)


Quick Tips on dealing with a cable box that is not working:

    1. Unplug the power cord for 10 seconds, then plug it back in.
    2. Turn box back on and press the blue cox menu button on your remote.
    3. Go to “Customer Support” in the menu
    4. Go to “Tech Support”
    5. Hit “Self-Test”

If further support is necessary, please contact Cox Communications directly at 1-855-512-8876 and ask for tech support. Tech Support will work with you to resolve you issue or schedule a technician to come out an make the needed repairs. Please note that you do not need a passcode or be the account holder to get proper tech support. If, for any reason, your tech representative is unwilling to help you because you are not the account holder, ask them kindly for another technician or supervisor that is familiar with tech support on residential bulk accounts. If your call to Cox Communications tech support does not resolve the issue, please inform a Residence Life Staff member for further guidance. If you and your Residence Life Staff member is not able to resolve the issue, please fill out this form.

If access to a Data Closet is needed by the Cox technician during business hours, please contact the Housing Office at 918-631-2516. If it is after hours, you will need to reschedule the appointment for a minimum of 1 business day in the future, and then fill out the Data Closet Access Request Form.

Bed Adjustments

If your bed becomes loose or broken, please submit a work order to the University’s Physical Plant.

You are allowed to bunk your beds but do not attempt to do it by yourself! Get a friend to help. The physical plant does not bunk beds. For your safety, you must use proper bunk bed pins and they are available from a staff member.

You can find approved-bed risers at your local retail store. Never attempt to use risers on bunked beds. Always use common sense and safety when adjusting your bed.
