Quick Facts


Dedicated to John F. Dodge, who harbored a deep interest in automobiles, trains, and other mass transit vehicles throughout his lifetime, Dodge Hall of Engineering was constructed to house Oakland's School of Engineering and the Department of Biology. Dodge was the first husband of Oakland University benefactress Matilda R. Wilson, who donated much of her land and resources to the inception of the university.  When the Engineering Center opened in Fall 2014, the building name became simply "Dodge Hall."

The construction of Dodge Hall was delayed several weeks due to a buildings trades strike.
