Oglethorpe University is only one mile north of the Brookhaven MARTA station on the gold rail line. If you are coming from downtown or the airport, you must be on a northbound train marked “Doraville” to get to Brookhaven. Or transfer at Five Points to the northbound gold train if you are coming from the blue or green rail line.
There two commute options from Brookhaven:
It takes just over 20 minutes to reach the university from the MARTA station. Follow the signs pointing “to street” to exit the station and turn right in front of the station to reach Dresden Drive. Turn left on Dresden and cross over Peachtree Street. Turn right on Peachtree Street and walk past Brookhaven Park and Town Brookhaven to reach Oglethorpe. There is a lot of car traffic in the area, so use caution when walking and crossing streets.
Take bus 25 northbound from the Brookhaven or Lenox station (there is also a southbound). There is a bus stop across the street from the university. For real-time bus arrivals, use the OneBusAway website or app. The MARTA on the Go app has printed schedules, or look up route information online.
