Driving Directions

Oxford Mississippi is located about eighty miles south of Memphis, Tennessee, on Highway 6 between Batesville and Tupelo. The closest airports providing commercial jet service are the Memphis International Airport and the Tupelo Regional Airport. The Oxford University Airport provides limited small aircraft service as well as private service. Amtrak provides service to Memphis via the “City of New Orleans” route.

There are two Libraries. The J.D. Williams Library houses the main collection, Archives and Special Collections, and the AICPA Library. The Science Library is located within the Thad Cochran Research Center.

Look for announcements about “Library Tour Week” offered during the fall semester. Typical library tours last about 20 minutes and start at the East Circulation Desk near Starbucks in the J.D. Williams Library. Personalized library tours can also be arranged in advance. To request a tour, please email Melissa Dennis at
