Niko Hall at ORU is named for Indonesian pastor Niko Njotorahardjo, the founder and senior pastor of Gereja Bethel Indonesia church in Jakarta, Indonesia.

Oral Roberts University recently opened its first new housing on campus since 1976.

Niko Hall, a nearly $10-million-dollar apartment-style student residence, has separate structures — one for men and one for women — with a lobby connecting the two. Featuring suites and a dorm-style top floor, the facility houses 240 students.

The new residence hall is named for Indonesian pastor Niko Njotorahardjo, the founder and senior pastor of Gereja Bethel Indonesia church in Jakarta, Indonesia.

The Sept. 20 ribbon-cutting for Niko Hall also signified the completion of Oral Roberts University’s five-year, $50 million fundraising campaign, the largest and most successful comprehensive campaign in ORU’s history. Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt and the pastor Niko Njotorahardjo, the hall’s namesake, were in attendance.
