Travel information

There is no commercial airport in Oxford. We recommend the Memphis International Airport which is about 70 miles away from Oxford.

If you are driving from Memphis International Airport, start out going West on WINCHESTER RD towards ELVIS PRESLEY BLVD/TN-3/US-51 by turning left. Turn RIGHT onto ELVIS PRESLEY BLVD/TN-3/US-51. Turn RIGHT onto E BROOKS RD. Take the I-55 SOUTH. Take the MS-6 EAST exit, exit number 243A, towards OXFORD. Drive about 22 miles on Highway 6. Turn left to West Jackson Ave. on the first traffic light. Drive about 2 miles and turn right you will reach the entrance of the campus.

If you are driving on I-55 from the South, take exit 243-A on Batesville to Highway 6 (East). Drive about 22 miles on Highway 6 and turn left to West Jackson Ave. Drive about 2 miles and turn right you will reach the entrance of the campus.

If you are driving from Atlanta or Birmingham,  Drive along I-20 then change to US78-W. After you pass Tupelo, Mississippi,  take the Sherman exit (exit 76) and turn left to Highway 9. Drive about 10 miles on Highway 9, then turn right to Highway 76. Highway 76 becomes Highway 6 which passes through Oxford. Follow the sign and you will reach Oxford and the University.

The conference will be held in the Student Union. Find the Student Union on the campus map.

Parking  

The conference registration and hospitality area will be in room Union 405. Parking passes will be available in Union 405 during conference hours. Note the Student Union parking lot is only a 30 minute lot so this is not a good place to park for the conference. Parking areas surrounding the Women's Terrace (north of the Student Union) are close to the Student Union.
