Oakland University Credit Union is a trade-name of the MSU Federal Credit Union, the world’s largest university-based credit union, which offers a full range of personal- and business-related financial services to Michigan State University and Oakland University faculty, staff, students, alumni association members, and their families worldwide in addition to a variety of select employee groups. OUCU began their partnership with Oakland University in the late 1950s after Alfred and Matilda Wilson donated $2 million and their 1,500-acre estate to Michigan State University to start a new college in Oakland County. The Credit Union was the financial institution that provided financial services to the university employees during that time and continued to serve the OU community after Oakland University became its own entity. Now, MSUFCU and OUCU together have thirteen branches, over 180,000 members, more than $2.5 billion in assets, and over 530 employees.
