It depends on how much money you want to spend a month on rent. There are some cheap decent places in downtown Rochester Its a great area not much crime etc police station right in the area located near alot of restaurants, shopping, hospital etc. I think there priced at mid 550 and up. It also not to far of a drive to OU.
St john riverview from OU is 40 minutes, 32 miles. Thats alot of driving. I drove to OU five days a week my freshman year from Detroit. I left. 300 miles a month was too much for me and my financial aid package sucked. There are reasonable apartments within walking distance from OU. Around 600 a month.
