Welcome Incoming Students!

We are so excited to have you here at Hillel and joining the University of Oklahoma. Hillel is more than a place to come for Shabbat; it is a home-away-from-home where you can grab lunch, study, spill the tea, make new friends, learn, or just relax. Our Hillel is a place where you are always welcome. 

To learn more, contact any of the staff, follow us on social media, or message us so that we can have one of our incredible engagement interns or student leaders reach out to you!

Weekly Events to Look Forward to! 

Tuesday Schmoozeday 

This is an easy come and go event and a chance to meet other Hillel students. This is a favorite for most students because you get free coffee and it's on campus at the Bookmark. 

Weekly Student Lunches

 Weekly kosher meals are available at      Hillel. Please let our staff know about any allergies or dietary restrictions in advance. *Due to COVID-19, we are not currently providing lunches at Hillel. We will resume meal service when it is safe to serve our students in our facility.*
