In-person Events and Tours

We are so excited to welcome you and your family back to campus! We've been working hard to provide exciting and safe programming so you can truly see the opportunity that awaits you at Oakland University.    

Precautions in the midst of COVID-19: 

It is important to us to keep you, your guests and our campus community safe. Though campus buildings that are open to the public are subject to change as needed, we are excited to show you as much of campus as possible. While visiting campus, please observe the following safety measures:

  • Face coverings are required for all individuals and must remain on while indoors. If you do not have your own mask, one will be made available for you.
  • All visitors must continue to complete online Daily Health Screening Form as this process remains useful in efforts to prevent spread of the virus. 
Campus Tours

We offer student-led tours of the OU campus nearly every weekday. Check our calendar for the full schedule. During the college visit you will:

  • Tour Oakland University’s academic buildings and residence halls.

  • See laboratories, design studios, and other hands-on learning facilities. 

  • Visit the Oakland Center, which houses our bookstore, coffee shop, food court, and student organizations.

  • Meet a current student and learn first hand about life on campus at OU!

The campus tour includes plenty of opportunities to connect with our community. You’ll meet students, faculty, admissions advisers, and other people who shape the character and values of OU’s campus.

It only takes a few seconds to register for a college visit. We look forward to seeing you on OU’s campus.
