Housing Eligibility

To be eligible to reside in Oakland University’s residence halls or apartments, students must be:
  • formally admitted to the University as matriculated or conditionally admitted students in a degree program at the University and enrolled in a minimum of 8 credit hours during each fall or winter semester, and 4 credit hours for each spring or summer semester, in which they reside in residence halls or apartments;
  • matriculated students in a degree program at another college or university that has an affiliation agreement with the University; or 
  • participating in the University’s hostel program or authorized summer camp programs.
Students enrolled in continuing education classes or other non-degree programs are not formally admitted to the University.

Students must also complete at least 56 credit hours in good standing, and be at least 20 years of age by March 31 in the year in which they apply, to reside in the apartments. Students living in the apartments at the end of any winter term may remain in the apartments during the spring and summer semesters, without enrolling in any classes during those semesters, if they are returning to the apartments in the following fall semester.

Students must vacate residence hall rooms or apartments within seventy-two (72) hours of receiving notice that they are no longer eligible to reside in residence halls or apartments for any reason, or earlier if the University’s Director of Housing (“Housing Director”) determines in his/her sole and exclusive discretion that it is in the University’s best interest for a student to vacate earlier.
