Oglethorpe University is located in Atlanta, minutes from the Buckhead district and 10 miles north of downtown. Atlanta is served by Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, the MARTA transit system of trains and buses, and interstates I-20, I-75 and I-85.


No matter your airline of choice, Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport (the world's busiest passenger airport) makes arriving in Atlanta a breeze. Visitors can reach Oglethorpe's campus by taking the Gold Line MARTA train north from the airport to the Brookhaven-Oglethorpe University station. Many nearby hotels also offer shuttle service to and from MARTA stations and the OU campus-- inquire before booking your room. Visitors arriving by air who wish to have greater local mobility are encouraged to rent a car at the airport.


Oglethorpe University is located inside the Perimeter (I-285) on Peachtree Road, just a few minutes north of Atlanta’s Buckhead district. Visitors from outside the metro area can easily arrive via I-20, I-75, I-85 and GA-400. Click here for detailed driving directions to campus.
