  • Demolition starts at OU's Adams Center

    Demolition has started on Adams Center in Norman as it makes way for a new housing complex. Just to the west, Stubbeman Village is also being razed.

    The 12-story building served as a home to thousands of students for almost 60 years, and its upcoming demolition will make way for two new residence halls that will provide more than 1,150 beds.

    The new residence halls will feature community lounge spaces with kitchenettes, music and study rooms, storm shelters, an on-site coffee shop, and a convenience store. The university plans to start construction on the north residence hall in the fall of 2023, with a planned opening in fall of 2025. Construction of the south residence hall is slated to begin in 2024, with a planned opening in fall 2026.

    The university also plans to demolish and replace the other two 12-story towers, Walker and Couch Centers, in future phases of the housing master plan.
