Apple Pay comes to the University of Oklahoma campus

We've already seen Apple Pay land in numerous retailers since its debut, and now it's starting to trickle out to college campuses. The University of Oklahoma has just announced that it will start accepting Apple's mobile payments platform campus-wide starting this week. From the University of Oklahoma:

Starting this week, Sooners are now able to pay for items at any one of OU's 400 point-of-service locations — everywhere from Couch Restaurants to the One University Store and the OU Bookstore. That's right: Buying textbooks, technology and food on campus has never been easier — or more techy.

Previously in Apple's Q3 2015 earnings call, CEO Tim Cook announced that Apple Pay will begin arriving at 700 universities and colleges starting this school year. Some of the colleges include Auburn University, the University of California Irvine, and Colorado State University. For its part, the University of Oklahoma says it is the first university to roll out support for Apple Pay campus wide.
