Tealridge Retirement Community
Oklahoma Christian University has owned and operated the Tealridge Retirement Community on the OC campus since the facility opened in 1990.
With OC’s record enrollments causing an on-campus student housing shortage, Oklahoma Christian has announced plans to transition Tealridge to a student living community over the next several years. The transition will be gradual, not abrupt.
It is not anticipated that current Tealridge residents will be asked to move, and certainly not in the near term. To facilitate the transition and allow for continued high-quality service to our current residents, Tealridge will only accept new senior residents who are already in process or have existing reservations. Rooms will be converted to student residences as they come available.
Tealridge staff members remain in place to serve the residents. The dining room and other services are continuing as they have in the past, with no changes in the foreseeable future. We encourage senior residents to attend social events planned with student residents as we develop further intergenerational interactions during this transition.
