What is it like studying at Holberton School Tulsa?

Holberton School Tulsa was founded in the Arts District of downtown Tulsa in spring of 2020. Tulsa has a great need for skilled software developers; the tech industry in Oklahoma is projected to provide thousands of jobs over the next decade, and the investment of city and community partners paved the way for establishing a Holberton campus to ensure the incoming workforce is prepared to meet the demand for workers.

Holberton School Tulsa seeks to tap into communities that are historically underrepresented in tech to ensure the growing technological industry in Tulsa is representative of the population it serves. Flexible financing and living assistance partnerships with community organizations ensure that students have the ability to put their education first.

Located in the Arts District of Downtown Tulsa, our facilities are available 24/7 to students and aim to provide them with any resources they might need in their time here. In order to accommodate a projected increase in enrollments, we are currently expanding our campus into an adjacent building which will be open in summer 2022. Until then, you can check out what our current building looks like through our virtual tour.
