Quick Facts


While the Oakland University Honors College was established in the mid-1970s , it has only recently received its own structure.  In 1997, it moved from Varner Hall to the ground floor of student residence Vandenberg Hall. The curved glass design was intended to represent the innovation and ambition of its 200 students.  It included a reception area, a director's office, a meeting room, a student lounge,  classrooms and computer laboratory. Most recently, the Honors College has been relocated to Oakland's newest student residence, Oak View Hall.  In Fall 2014 , 900 students enrolled in the Honors College, approximately 5% of the overall campus community.
