Hey! I am also on for July 29th. Did you already secure your housing? I was originally sch'd for Aug. 6th but was asked to move up. I did and will be staying at the Extended Stay for a week then move to Walnut Gardens. Congrats on this!

Just a heads up to those headed to OKC. I know that housing is sparse, but student services are currently trying to get Meridian Mansions off the approved housing list. A girl in my class woke up to cockroaches in her bed with her. Then when she requested an exterminator, they just had their maint. guy spray her apartment with some raid.

Another guy in my class got an unexpected roommate at midnight three nights after we got here.

On the plus side, I highly recommend Spanish Gardens. It is another 5 minutes north from the airport, but they have the best accommodations I have seen here so far.

R10, thanks for that info. What's the lodging fee for Spanish Gardens? Also, how are the classes going so far?

I can attest to this. I stayed at Highland Pointe for a month and then moved to Meridian Mansions cause it was cheaper. Well there was a sign on the door that said the place had just been sprayed. I walked in and there were some dead bugs around and then i killed a spider later that night. I woke up in the morning feeling like I had dust in my throat cause the place was so dirty. I stayed two nights and then moved back to Highland Pointe. Highland Pointe is really nice and it's $52 a day if you can get a place through Corporate Housing Solutions. I'd also not recommend using ATB. If you are desperate then just book with Evans Living. Yeah, you'll pay a ton, but you'll be at one of the nicest places in OKC.

I'm sch'd to move into Walnut Gardens on Aug. 5th. It sucks having to go from one spot to the next, but I just heard that the Extended Stay is newer and offers most of the same amenities. The price is about $10 more though. I haven't made up my mind as to whether I will stay or go. I guess it's good to have choices.:)

I just noticed they updated the housing / hotel list this morning. Some of them look like new posts (not new apts) and hotels.
