Our Hotel

Graduate Oxford is more than just a place to lay your head. While you’re with us, sip on a coffee at Cabin 82 or enjoy expansive views of the city at The Coop. We’re the perfect spot for Rebels – and their dogs! Pets stay free at Graduate Hotels.

We’re just a mile from Ole Miss campus, and prominently perched on The Square – the hub of the city center. Our lobby is stacked high with vintage reads, awash in preppy pink floors and cozy seersucker sofas. Take in Oxford elegance at The Coop terrace lounge for light bites and live blues or signature sips at Cabin 82, a nod to the heart of The Neshoba County Fair in our own quaint café.

From boardroom business to bridal parties, we can help plan your meeting or Ole Miss meet up for 2 or 200. The Coop, our terrace top lounge, is private party perfect and yours for the asking! We offer custom catering menus for any occasion and supply the latest tech touches to keep your specs on point and tea real sweet.
