Plan your event at Oxford.

Oxford College Events and Conferences (OCEC) manages the operations for all events and programs that take place on the Oxford campus throughout the academic year.

In addition, OCEC coordinates the rental and use of Oxford College facilities to persons and organizations outside Oxford. This includes meetings, seminars, summer camps, training institutes and the like. 

Our campus, located 38 miles east of Atlanta on the historic original campus of Emory University, features historically rich architecture. Seven buildings on our tree-lined quad were built before 1900, including the iconic Victorian architecture of Seney Hall, built in 1881. Today, these buildings, along with numerous more recent structures, are  equipped with 21st-century technology and flexible spaces.

We have enjoyed bringing hundreds of teens out to Oxford each summer for more than 20 years. All-inclusive pricing helps us budget and we couldn't ask for a better setting for our students to learn and have fun.
