Campuses & Landmarks

Emory's main campus covers more than 600 acres in Atlanta's historic suburb of Druid Hills. Students, faculty, staff and visitors enjoy a peaceful, pedestrian-friendly environment, with easy proximity to one of the nation's fastest-growing metropolitan areas.

The campus features a thoughtful balance of buildings and green space. Peavine Creek, a branch of the historic Peachtree Creek, winds through maples, oaks, magnolias, pines and dogwoods that grace the gently rolling hills.

The Haygood-Hopkins Memorial Gateway marks the main entrance from Druid Hills, a gracious, park-like residential area designed by landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted. The original campus plan is the work of Beaux-Arts architect Henry Hornbostel. Other noted architects who have designed buildings here include John C. Portman and Michael Graves.
