Welcome to Ole Miss!
To ensure your time on campus is as pleasant as possible, read about required parking passes and designated lots for visitors, students, faculty and staff.
Intermittent Closure of Parking and All American Near Coulter Hall
Thursday April 24th. Ongoing construction at the Coulter Hall site will require the intermittent closure of the small ADA parking lot behind the building (accessed from All American). The spaces will occasionally be blocked for up to 20-30 minutes at time. DPT has been informed that the spaces will remain usable but drivers should be prepared to wait while materials are delivered to the construction site through the lot entrance.
Additionally the southbound lane of All American on the east side of the construction site will be blocked from 8:30am until Noon. Flagmen will be present to direct traffic. Expect delays and plan accordingly. Follow all warning and construction signs and watch for pedestrian traffic.

Parking Lot Construction Issue– Tad Smith Valley Lot
Construction crews made a connection to the storm drain system under the Tad Smith Valley Lot. The pavement was removed in a section and replaced with gravel. Until crews can repave the section commuters should proceed with caution. Do not block entry and exit points and please try to park in line with other vehicles where the stall lines are obscured by mud or gravel. A new pedestrian path has been established on the west side of the construction fence and a set of steps lead up and out of the lot.
Parking Garage and Arena Construction Updates
Phase II of the project which includes realignment of Hill Drive and the start of construction of a new Arena began over Spring Break. This resulted in the complete closure of several parking lots and the section of Hill Drive between Manning Way and All American Drive. For more information- (February 2014 Construction Note)
Taylor Road - Highway 6 Construction
Widening of the Old Taylor Road bridge and overpass across Highway 6 has begun. The project should last about a year and will involve the closure of the bridge between May 12th and August 15th. When finished, the bridge will be widened to include a pedestrian walkway and a round-a-about on each end similar to South Lamar Avenue. When the bridge is closed, traffic to the campus and Highway 6 on Old Taylor Road will be routed to a new road from the current Kitchenaid Drive to Coliseum Drive. Between now and completion of the project, there may be delays on Old Taylor Road and Highway 6. Please plan accordingly and proceed with caution through the area. Follow all warning and construction signs and watch for pedestrian traffic. More information will be provided as the project continues.
