Visiting Emory College

Emory College is located on Emory University's main campus in the suburban Atlanta neighborhood of Druid Hills. The campus is approximately a 15-minute drive from the downtown, midtown, and Buckhead areas. If traveling from Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, plan on at least a 30 minute trip by car. MARTA, Atlanta’s mass transit system, provides regular bus service and several train stations near campus.

Please note Atlanta's rush hour traffic can be especially high in volume, and we recommend planning accordingly. Build in extra travel time during the hours of 7:00—9:00 a.m. and 3:30—7:00 p.m.

Visiting Oxford College

Oxford College is approximately 45 minutes from Downtown Atlanta, Emory University’s main campus and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. Visitors flying in to the Atlanta area are encouraged to rent a car so they have more control over their arrival time and how long they choose to stay at Oxford. If renting a car is not an option, we suggest using one of the executive car services available from the airport. Taxi services from the airport to Oxford are available, though they may be more expensive.
