University of Tulsa Opens State’s Largest Starbucks

The University of Tulsa recently opened the largest Starbucks in the state of Oklahoma, according to a university news release. McFarlin Library debuted the 3,014-square-foot space on its main floor. The location’s decoration, including modern furniture and art, were specifically tailored to the library’s décor, and it accepts the university’s Hurricane Gold Dollars for food and drink purchases, the news release reports.

Construction took just four months, and the new Starbucks takes over a space formerly occupied by a campus computer lab. The lab relocated to a renovated space in the Student Union.

“We are excited to offer this new dining option and bright space to our students. Moreover, we are pleased that the project was completed in time to welcome the alumni and families who are joining us for the TU Homecoming activities this week,” said University President Brad R. Carson. “Much like the recent upgrade of the campus Chick-fil-A, Starbucks is extremely popular among students, and no university treats students better than The University of Tulsa.”
