Students gather in Oxford's Dining Hall.

Housing and Dining

Almost all students live on campus at Oxford, so housing and dining plays a big role in our friendly, close-knit community.

Fall 2020 Housing and Dining Updates

Based on the current COVID-19 conditions in our region, Emory has made very difficult decisions that affect all members of our community but are necessary to create a safe learning environment while upholding our core principles. Please check the Oxford Forward pages for updated information about housing and dining.


In partnership with dining provider Bon Appétit, our goal is to provide quality food and healthy dining options. Our menus use seasonal and regional fresh products, including fruits and vegetables from the Oxford Organic Farm. We also have vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options. We're sure to have something that suits your food cravings.


The Oxford Dining Hall serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner Monday through Friday, and brunch, lunch, and dinner on the weekends. The deli, full double-sided salad bar, soups, hand-tossed brick-oven pizza, self-serve pasta, and desserts are available all day.

For those on the go, Oxpresso, located in the library, offers quick grab breakfast and carry-out lunch options, as well as a hot breakfast meal exchange beginning at 7:00 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday for our early weekend risers.

You’ll find the Jackson Family Kitchen in the student center. The Jackson Family Kitchen provides café food items and coffee for extended hours.

Healthy selections await you each day as part of your Oxford meal plan.

We strive to provide at least 50 percent local and/or sustainable food in our dining hall, and in keeping with Emory University's waste-diversion program, implemented a zero-waste initiative that aims to divert at least 90 percent of generated waste from landfills.
