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.


Please note that during the fall 2020 semester due to the current COVID-19 conditions in our region, our Oxford dining locations are limiting hours and service. 

The Oxford Dining Hall:

  • will be take-out only; dining room seating has been eliminated with queuing and occupancy based on Emory guidelines for physical distancing
  • will be organized into two identical service areas to expedite service and allow maximum throughput
  • will have scaled-down menus but will still offer a variety of options at each meal including classics with a vegan alternative, grill options, pizza, and prepared salads

You’ll find the Jackson Family Kitchen in the student center. The Jackson Family Kitchen:

  • will offer both retail and meal exchange options
  • will offer coffee and blended beverages, breakfast sandwiches, fruit and pastries for breakfast and soups, deli sandwiches, and salads for lunch
  • will also offer an additional meal swipe/meal exchange for lunch featuring the classics meal option from the dining hall

Oxpresso, located in the library, will not operate for fall 2020. We will reassess and potentially add back service in spring 2021.

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.
