The main University of Mississippi campus is located in picturesque Oxford, which boasts a vibrant town Square offering family-owned shops and a James Beard Award-winning fine dining restaurant. Oxford’s literary roots run deep as the home of Nobel Prize winning author William Faulkner, whose home Rowan Oak is now a museum owned by the university. Oxford has been featured in publications including Conde Nast Traveler, Southern Living, and Garden & Gun. With an excellent school system, great city parks, bicycle paths, and public transportation, Oxford is a great place to live and work.
