College is more than just books. It's about building lifelong friendships, discovering your passions, and defining who you want to be. At Oakland University, even though we may be "physically distant", we are not "socially distant". Our community is here to engage and support you in everything you do - this is why we are here.


At Oakland University, home of the Golden Grizzlies, more than 19,000 graduate and undergraduate students actively engage with each other and the world around them. The opportunities - educational, cultural, recreational, and social -- are endless.

Situated north of Detroit and spread across 1,400 acres in the heart of Oakland County, OU houses seven residence halls, two apartment complexes, a state of the art recreation center and athletic dome, a newly renovated and expanded student union, the OU Art Gallery, Meadow Brook Hall, Meadow Brook Theatre and the Meadow Brook Amphitheatre.

With 17 fraternities and sororities, 18 NCAA Division I sports programs, and nearly 300 student organizations, OU empowers every student to get involved and create their ultimate college experience.
