dining hall

Oxford dining: fresh, delicious, social.

At Oxford, our entire community eats in one dining hall. You’ll frequently see Dean Doug Hicks and our faculty and staff enjoying the same farm-to-table dining options and treats you do, including our ice cream machine.

In partnership with 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 Oxford's 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 (The Café) 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. Please enjoy as much as you’d like while dining with us. Food removed from the premises is limited to one piece of hand-held fruit or one other hand-held dessert item. 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.

Commitment to sustainability 

organic farmOxford Dining promotes sustainability. We strive to provide at least 50% local and/or sustainable food in our dining hall. We're committed to Emory University's waste-diversion program and implemented a zero-waste initiative. Zero-waste programs divert at least 90% of generated waste from landfills. That's why you won't need a tray in the dining hall.
