Weatherford

SWOSU’s main campus sits on a windswept hilltop in Weatherford, OK. It’s about an hour away from Oklahoma City… which is close enough to attend concerts, dine out, catch a Thunder game, do what you do to have a good time… but, far enough from outside distractions so that you can concentrate on your studies. The main campus provides the experience of a traditional college campus with eateries, residence halls, academic buildings, libraries, fitness and health centers and research facilities.

Weatherford is a thriving community with several museums, community parks, a movie theater, a library, a hospital, a wind energy park and a historic Towne Center.
