Located in the center of campus, the Student Union houses a Cafeteria, Bookstore, Post Office, and Student Health Services. In addition, the Student Union has two lounges available for use. The PSO Lounge has an attached solarium and both indoor and outdoor seating. Students use the PSO Lounge as a meeting place in between classes or as an alternative eating location. The Viersen Lounge, more removed from activity, is quiet and perfect for studying or quiet conversation.
The Student Union Cafeteria includes a soup and salad bar, hot entrees, fresh vegetables and accompaniments, desserts, a grill for cooked-to-order hamburgers, deli sandwich counter, convenience foods, and a wide variety of beverages. In addition to the dining facilities provided by OSU Institute of Technology in the Student Union, the Culinary Arts department offers gourmet dining as part of their classroom experience in the State Room and Tech Room. More information is available on the Culinary Arts Dining Services web page. We also provide a convenience store in the commons area of the Miller-Kamm residence halls.

Students receive mail on campus either through a campus post office box, general delivery, or a residence hall box. Boxes can be rented for a small charge per semester with the charge being based on box size. Box assignments and rental payments are made at the campus post office. General delivery mail must be picked up at the post office window. Students living in the residence halls receive their mail in their residence hall. Students living in England and Hannigan Hall are encouraged to obtain a post office box.

Campus Health Services is available to all students and faculty/staff. Students may obtain medical advice without charge from the college physician. Students who need hospitalization, x-rays or lab work are referred to the Okmulgee Memorial Hospital and must pay for the cost of the services received. The college physician can write a prescription to the pharmacy of the student’s choice but the student is responsible for payment. The OSU Institute of Technology Infirmary, located in the Student Union, is open Monday through Friday when school is in session, from 11:30 a.m. until the doctor has seen all patients who are waiting.
Students are advised to carry health insurance while in school. Several national insurance companies offer low-cost group medical insurance coverage for college students. More information concerning student health insurance plans is available through the Student Financial Services Office.
