ABOUT THE CAMPUS

Noted as among the nation’s most beautiful campuses, The Grove, a 1/2 hectare space in the heart of campus, has been praised as the nation’s number one tailgating spot. A touchdown from the Rebels starts on the football field, with cheers echoing into the street.

A Campus of Living History

Nearly 50 buildings throughout Oxford are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Amidst these charming spaces, students enjoy 800 hectares of lush lawns, wooded trails, and historic buildings.

The Center of Innovation

The university holds more than 40 patents for inventions including a fire ant trap, novel drug-delivery systems, immune system stimulators and possible treatments for cancer, malaria, pain and infections. This work takes place across the university, which is home to 40 major research centers.

A Home for Creativity

Ole Miss’ SAA Spring Concert unites the Oxford community and student-led SAA members to combine Oxford’s biggest events of the year. Held in the Grove, a grassy, 10-acre stretch flocked by students, the SAA has sponsored the headlining band for the 23rd Double Decker Arts Festival, The Cold War Kids. The Double Decker Arts Festival is a two-day celebration of the arts and is a local and student favorite. One of Oxford’s biggest events of the year, the annual event is held on the Oxford Square.
