HOUSING

24-hour on-site security and medical staff ensure the safety of every OSAI student. All students are housed within the Quartz Mountain State Park which is monitored by park rangers.

All housing facilities are air-conditioned. Housing assignments are designed to encourage interaction between students of different disciplines, and roommates are assigned by age. In general, female counselors and female students are housed in the lodge rooms that sleep 3-4 students. Male counselors and male students room in cabins, bunkhouses, and duplexes that sleep 6-14.

Recognizing that these housing options may not be appropriate for everyone, OAI also offers gender-inclusive housing. Gender-inclusive housing is open to students whose needs are not met by our traditional housing options and supports OAI's non-discrimination policy, which includes gender identity and gender expression. To inquire about gender-inclusive housing or for any other questions related to housing, please contact Emily Claudé at eclaude@oaiquartz.org or 405.605.7500.
