Directions
The Meadow Brook Estate is located at 480 South Adams Road in Rochester, MI — between Flint and Detroit.

Take I-75 to University Drive (Exit 79) then go east to Squirrel Road, where Oakland University's main entrance is located. Turn left on Squirrel Road. Turn right at Walton Boulevard. Turn right at Adams Road. Turn right at the east entrance to Oakland University's campus and follow the signs to Meadow Brook Hall.

Take M-59 to the Adams Road North exit. Go north on Adams Road. Turn left onto the campus of Oakland University. Follow the signs to Meadow Brook Hall. For more information, see Oakland University's Campus Map. (Select OU East Campus on the drop down menu and select Meadow Brook Hall & Gardens.)

Parking
Visitor parking is free and available in the lot adjacent to the Meadow Brook Hall courtyard. There is no parking in the front circle at The Hall's main entrance or in the courtyard. For more information on parking on OU's campus, see the Parking Page.

Photography

Photography Statement
Meadow Brook's "photography not allowed on the grounds" signs are meant to discourage photographers who use the building, gardens and grounds for professional backdrops and commercial gain. Given that it is a National Historic Landmark, Meadow Brook's images have value and since the operation is self-supporting, that value has to be protected.

Also, Meadow Brook has experienced dramatically increased public use in recent months from photographers and videographers of all kinds (commercial and non-commercial), who often disrupt private events that The Hall relies on for revenue. When couples, families and businesses pay for exclusive use of the facilities, it is obviously not fair when people who are not paying disrupt events.

Of course we allow visitors who tour The Hall to take souvenir photos of the exterior of the building and the gardens and grounds – as we do with our attendees of our special events like Jazz in the Garden, the Wild Game Dinner, Holiday Walk...and community events such as Hug the Hall.

If you are interested in using The Hall for a professional shoot please contact the sales and events office by calling (248) 364-6220.

General Guidelines
  • A signed contract must be executed between you and Meadow Brook Hall.
  • All shoots must be prepaid.
  • You must provide MBH with proof of liability insurance, or sign a waiver releasing MBH from liability.
  • Photographers & videographers must be accompanied by a sales/event manager for the duration of their session.
