Greek Cottage District

Quick Facts


The Cottage District has become an integral part of Oakland University's housing culture over the years. The four residences were first used as housing for staff members of Meadow Brook Estate; this usage was discontinued in the 1950s as the Cottages passed from the Wilsons to the University through the donations of the formers' estate.

The cottages fell  into minimal rental usage by university faculty and staff for several decades.  It was not until 2004, when various chapters of Oakland University's Greek student organizations applied for housing within the cottage district, that the Cottages were able to enjoy more continual usage.
