  • A growing area! Oxford's population of 19,022 people represents an increase of 13.44% since 2000. As a result, the area has seen tremendous growth; the average age of homes in Oxford is just 18 years, compared to the national average of 37 years. Some areas that have seen the biggest growth include the neighborhoods of Taylor, just west of the university, and Oxford Commons. Oxford Commons is a planned community with biking and walking trails, a movie theater, and its own shopping center, The Village. Residents can walk to dinner or a movie, then stroll back via the neighborhood sidewalks.
  • A large rental population! Renters make up 36.42% of the local population. In comparison, just 30.19% of homes across the country are considered rentals. What's more, 36.77% of houses, apartments and rent to own homes in Oxford are vacant, which is more than the national unoccupied rate of just 12.47%. This makes it relatively easy to find rental homes in Oxford, and the area immediately surrounding the university has plenty of rental options. Another area with plenty of rentals is that just north of the university, on either side of Old Sardis Road. These communities are close to downtown, major roads like Hwy 6/278 and Hwy 314, and the University-Oxford Airport.
  • A strong literary heritage! Named after the city of Oxford in England, the Southern city has a strong literary history, thanks to the University of Mississippi, known as Ole Miss, and native sons like William Faulkner and John Grisham. Historical places are folded into the fabric of the city. The Lyric, a popular place to listen to live music, was once a livery stable owned by William Faulkner's family. Faulkner's former home, Rowan Oak, is a favorite tourist attraction. Grisham attended law school at Ole Miss and practiced law locally before becoming a full-time writer.
  • Everything happens in the Square! Much of the cultural life in Oxford happens downtown in what is known as the Square. The historic Lafayette County Courthouse anchors the block, which is filled with locally owned retail shops and restaurants, and business offices. Square Books is considered one of the best independent bookstores in the country, and has operated from the square since 1979. Another Square business, J.E. Neilson Co., was founded as a trading post in 1839, making it the South's oldest store.
