Oakland University is constantly working to provide a healthy and safe environment for all students, faculty, staff and visitors. We are committed to educate and train individuals in the prevention and control of infectious diseases as well as the potential for widespread health emergencies.

PREVENTION IS PRIMARY.  College students should pack more than their iPad and mini-fridge. Health authorities say that they should also pack an ounce of prevention against communicable diseases.  Living in residence halls, apartments, and off-campus housing can be a great experience, but know that everything which you own will probably be used by one person or another at some time.  If you have roommates and visitors, be aware that items such as phones, computer keyboards, TV remote controls, and even towels are all carriers of infectious disease.
