Transportation

    The best airport to get to Oxford, Mississippi is the Memphis International Airport in Memphis, Tennessee (MEM). You will need to rent a car to drive the 68 miles south to Oxford.

    Directions

    A Word of Warning

    Please note: if you are following along with a map, State Highway 6 is sometimes marked as US 278. However, you will not see any US 278 signs on the route.

    From Memphis International Airport

    Follow signs for I-240 from the airport. Take I-240 west (toward Downtown/Little Rock/St. Louis) to I-55 south (Exit 26, toward Jackson, Mississippi). At Batesville (Exit 243A), take Highway 6 east towards Oxford. After approximately 20 miles, exit at Chucky Mullins Drive and turn left. Turn right at the four-way stop onto Hill Drive. Follow Hill Drive to a four-way stop at All-American Way. Continue straight. Lewis Hall is the large building to the west.

    From Jackson, Mississippi

    Take I-55 north (toward Grenada and Memphis) to Batesville. At Batesville (Exit 243A), take Highway 6 east towards Oxford. After approximately 20 miles, exit at Chucky Mullins Drive and turn left. Turn right at the four-way stop onto Hill Drive. Follow Hill Drive to a four-way stop at All-American Way. Continue straight.
