Oakland University Welcome
Welcome to Meadow Brook Hall set amid the rolling hills of Oakland University’s 1,400-acre campus. This elegant and legendary home symbolizes our mission as stewards of the values of higher education and advocates for the betterment of our communities.
Funded through the visionary gift of OU founders Matilda Dodge Wilson and Alfred Wilson, Meadow Brook Hall is among the finest representations of Tudor-revival architecture with a timeless appeal that has earned it the distinction as a National Historic Landmark. The grandeur and style of the hall evokes the noble traditions of academic study and the promise of progress made possible by education and a sense of purpose.
We are inspired by our founders’ achievements in agriculture, commerce, and philanthropy and their emphasis on education, innovation and determination. Those same qualities form the foundation of our university.
Home to nearly 20,000 undergraduate and graduate students, Oakland University offers more than 130 undergraduate degrees and 135 graduate degree and certificate programs. Today, we take great pride in our tradition of student success with many of our graduates forming the backbone of the regional and state economy.
Our founding benefactors had a unique and innovative vision to bring a world-class public university to Oakland County. Today, we make every effort to share the resources of our university with you. In that spirit, please know that Meadow Brook Hall is meant to be shared with students, faculty, staff and the surrounding community. Our treasure belongs to you.
We look forward to seeing you at Meadow Brook Hall on the Oakland University campus soon!
