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. Regular bus service is available within the city of Oxford and on campus via the OUT Bus Service.
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 email@example.com.
