Student Housing

OU housing reinforces the values that define an Oakland University education.

COVID-19


In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, University Housing stands ready to assist current and future residents through dedicated virtual and remote support services. Please connect with us by calling (248) 370-3570 or emailing housing@oakland.edu to receive efficient responses to all questions and concerns. Visit Oakland University's official COVID-19 website for the most up-to-date resources and information.

Although you may not be living on campus this summer, you can plan for the future by submitting a housing contract for the fall 2020-winter 2021 academic year, viewing our residence hall and apartment options, and taking video tours of our facilities. Plan for fall move-in by reviewing room dimensions and checking out our list of recommended items to bring.

You can also take advantage of the wonderful resources available through University Housing's Student Success team. Schedule a phone or virtual appointment to receive academic support, tips on successful adjustment to online learning, major and career exploration, and information on other campus resources. Remote tutoring by our Academic Peer Mentor staff is also available in cooperation with the Tutoring Center.


Independence and community are a large part of OU housing’s appeal, but the benefits run deeper than that. Undergraduates who live in student housing are the university’s fastest-growing population segment. They’re involved in everything—filling leadership roles, building student organizations, staging events, and shaping OU’s future.

Those are just some of the ways OU housing intensifies the benefits you enjoy in the classroom. Student residences at Oakland University promote:

  • Experience. Living in student housing makes it easier for you to get involved in projects that influence the community. You’ll have opportunities to develop new leadership experiences, showcase your ideas, and achieve concrete outcomes that bolster your resume.
  • Supportive relationships. Social life and academic support fuse together in student housing. You’ll have ongoing access to study partners and peer tutors, especially if you live on one of our special interest floors with students who share your academic interests.
  • Amenities. Many of our residence halls are equipped with TV lounges, vending machines, laundry, dining facilities, fitness equipment, and other perks.
  • Diversity. OU housing hosts the most dynamic segment of the campus population. You’ll live with people from all over the country and overseas, building relationships with students of various cultures, ethnic traditions, and gender identities.
  • Convenience. Living in student housing eliminates a lot of hassle, enabling you to focus on what’s really important—your future. You’ll be liberated from concerns (and costs) related to traffic, parking, and other distractions. The result? Less stress, more freedom, and the ability to pour all your energy into the things that matter most.

Here’s another major reason to live in student housing: OU is the safest campus in Michigan and second-safest in the entire country, according to the National Council for Home Safety and Security.
