;

Proposed because both institutions need an additional building, the new facility will house classrooms, student services amenities and offices for faculty and staff.

It will be located on the OSU-Tulsa campus.

The Center for Health Sciences is expecting to increase enrollment sharply over the next five years, documents show, so additional classrooms will be needed to accommodate the growing number of students.

Medical students will use the facility during the day, while students from the other campus will use it at night.

Both campuses will contribute funding for the new building's design phase, although how exactly the rest will be paid for has yet to be decided, board documents show.

Board documents don't give cost estimates — for either building — or say how large the new facilities will be. It's also not clear when the projects will be finished at this early stage of development.
