Events and Conferences

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 people and organizations outside the college. This includes meetings, seminars, summer camps, training institutes, and the like.

Our campus, located 36 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-era Seney Hall, built in 1881. Today, these buildings, along with numerous more recent structures, are equipped with 21st-century technology and flexible spaces.

Planning your event

Whether you're designing a meeting or a month-long residential conference, our team can help you plan. Oxford offers several unique locations available to rent for private events. Unique Venues has named Oxford as a top pick historic venue. We can provide a venue for your business meeting, workshop, wedding reception, graduation party, or family reunion.

Dining

  • Will your group eat all of their meals on campus or will some be off campus?
  • Do your participants have special dietary restrictions (i.e. allergies, vegan or vegetarian, or kosher meals)?
  • Do you want a catered meal for a special event during your conference? Oxford Dining can provide your group with fresh, contemporary menus for special meals or informal coffee breaks. If you’re interested in a catered event, notify the Events and Conference office early in your planning. Browse the catering guide.

Meeting Spaces

What kind of meeting spaces do you need? Will you need technology? Throughout the Oxford campus there are technology enabled classrooms (TECs) as well as technology-enhanced conference rooms supported by Oxford College Information Technology. The technology installed in these spaces enables the user to bring out the best of their well-prepared lecture or presentation.   

We also have a few classrooms and meeting spaces that do not have installed technology. If there is a need to use technology in one of these spaces, then please submit an AskIT request to tell us what will be needed and when.

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.
