A true college town, Uptown Oxford is the hub for dining, shopping, and nightlife.
In the 19th century, Oxford could only be reached by a horse drawn carriage or by train. The Oxford train station was at the track crossing at Elm St. As a result, campus visitors and students had to pass first through town and, ultimately, down the Slant Walk to reach campus. Today, the Phi Delta Theta Gates see quieter times. The entrance to campus at the gates is now a popular place for student organization and community events.
Our dining facilities have won more awards than any other university in the nation. At mealtime, you'll find students heading to one of the many dining halls on campus. From burritos to burgers, and ice cream to toasted rolls, the options are as varied as they are tasty.
