Residence Life at Oxford

The sense of community you’ll find at Oxford begins in our residence halls. You’ll find everything you need for a smooth transition to college on our close-knit campus. And, you’ll have the wise counsel of sophomore residence assistants, who were in your shoes only last year.

Living on Campus

Oxford’s size means you’re no more than five minutes away from wherever on campus you need to go—class, the library, the gym, or dining hall. It gives a whole new meaning to rolling out of bed and getting to class on time.

Two residential communities anchor the campus. The West Village includes Jolley Residential Center and Haygood Hall. Fleming Hall and the duo of Murdy and Elizer Halls comprise the East Village. All of the East Village residence halls are all LEED certified, the gold-standard for “green” building construction.

No matter which complex becomes your home, you’ll enjoy amenities such as fitness centers, kitchens, study and lounge spaces, and free laundry.

Dining Hall

It only snows occasionally in Georgia, but our dining hall has the looks of a beautiful ski lodge with beamed ceilings, fireplace and light-filled windows.

What you’ll find to eat is just as nice—fresh seasonal fruits and vegetables from Oxford’s organic farm; vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options, and dessert treats. Our commitment to sustainability means serving local and sustainably procured food and trayless dining. You can even get the daily menu downloaded to your phone.

Our sense of community is on full display in the dining hall. Everyone on campus eats there—even the dean.

Hear from an Oxford student

student Jackie Zhou 26Ox leans against a pillar

“As a future public interest attorney, I want to fight for women’s rights and changing social conventions, helping more women leave the household and realize dreams beyond raising children. Volunteering at the Shanghai Legal Aid Center opened my eyes to the fact that the actual application of justice wasn’t always just—and I want to play a role in changing the way legal systems work for the better. So far at Emory, everyone I’ve talked to so far seems to have similar passions and interests, and they’re not looking just to train for their careers or jobs, but become better people.”
