ROCHESTER HILLS, Mich. -

Some are raising the question as to where the Oakland University really is in metro Detroit.

The official address given by the university is the city of Rochester which is the address on North Squirrel. That was listed before the city of Auburn Hills existed.

An Auburn Hills City Council member said the majority of the university is in Auburn Hills and perhaps the address should be changed.

"We recognize half is in Auburn Hills, but I think most of the folks around here recognize that it's a regional asset," said Auburn Hills Mayor Bryan Barnett. "It puts us on the map in many ways and we are very pleased to be associated with Oakland University."

Right now there are no plans to change the current address.
