Greek Cottages

Oakland’s Greek cottage district consists of four historic two-story, up to 2,000-square-foot homes shared by upper-division students. Built around 1918 and used as residences for Meadow Brook farm staff members, this intimate living community is located directly across the street from OU’s main campus off Adams Road.

To live in OU’s Greek cottage district, you must belong to a participating fraternity or sorority. To learn how to be assigned to a cottage, contact the house manager for the organization to which you belong.
