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.


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.


Oxford College has four dining locations: the Oxford Café, Jackson Family Kitchen (JFK), Oxpresso, and the Pierce Hall Grab n’ Go.

Oxford Café

The Oxford Café is the residential dining hall at Oxford College. The dining hall serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, Monday through Friday, and brunch, lunch, and dinner on the weekends.

Stations include Classics offering a different hot entrée each day, Herbivore which features our vegan and vegetarian fare, and the Grill which offers things like burgers, grilled chicken, hot dogs and French fries. In addition, there is a made-to-order deli, an expansive double-sided self-serve salad bar, hand-tossed brick-oven pizza, self-serve pasta and soups as well as desserts which 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 fruit or other hand-held dessert item.


For those on the go, Oxpresso, located in the Oxford library, offers quick grab breakfast and carry-out lunch options. Oxpresso is our campus coffee house and serves the drip coffees, expresso drinks, breakfast sandwiches, and pastries you’d expect, but they also have a lot of unexpected items. Oxpresso offers fresh sushi daily, in addition to sandwiches and salads and they have a wide selection of specially selected international snacks available. Students can use a residential meal swipe to purchase breakfast from Oxpresso Monday-Friday until 10:00 a.m.

Jackson Family Kitchen

Jackson Family Kitchen, or JFK, located next to the bookstore in the Oxford Student Center, is our primary retail location. JFK’s menu varies from rice bowls to chicken sandwiches and they offer weekly specials that span the globe from Pho bowls to Tacos. Open until 11pm Sunday-Thursday, JFK provides Oxford’s community a healthy late night meal option well after the dining hall has closed. Students can use a residential meal swipe to purchase lunch from JFK Monday-Friday until 2pm.

Pierce Hall Grab n’ Go

The Pierce Hall Grab n’ Go isn’t open all day and may not satisfy those looking for a hearty lunch, but it does provide those needing a quick bite between classes a healthier alternative to what’s offered in the vending machines. Here you’ll find sandwiches, salads, cut and whole fruit, and more. Let us know your favorite go-to items and they just might get added to the menu.

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.
