What are per-person contracts?

Instead of requiring all roommates to sign a joint lease, each person at Crimson Park has their own individual contract, with one person per bedroom.

Will my financial aid cover charges at Crimson Park?

Your living costs at Crimson Park can be covered by financial aid, just like on-campus housing.

Is Crimson Park open to non-students?

Nearly all the residents at Crimson Park are students at the University of Oklahoma. The per-person contracts are also designed with students in mind.

Because of the need to match student roommates, non-students must apply together with enough roommates to fill the desired apartment.
