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.
North End Zone Construction Starts Monday Nov. 23rd
Construction to enclose the north side of Vaught-Hemmingway Stadium will begin the Monday following the home football game vs. LSU. The project is expected to take until August 2016 to complete and will result in the loss of parking on the north side of the stadium. The construction fence will begin installation on Monday, Nov. 23rd.
This project will coincide with needed updates to drainage pipes buried beneath the parking lots through the area resulting in the additional temporary loss of parking in the area. This work will begin in early January 2016. Click <HERE> for a map showing the approximate boundaries of the projects.
The combined projects will impact a significant allocation of Faculty/Staff parking but the majority should be returned once the projects are completed. To compensate for the loss of Faculty/Staff designated parking, the lots on Hill Drive currently being used by the Pavilion construction project will be designated as Faculty/Staff parking and will be returned to service as soon as possible pending spring weather affecting asphalt paving conditions. Pavilion construction should be concluding in early spring 2016.
In the interim, Faculty/Staff that normally park in this area are encouraged to seek other parking alternatives. Park-N-Ride service from the South Lot drops riders off at the new Kennon Bus Terminal behind Brevard Hall and operates from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm Monday through Friday while the Fall and Spring semesters are in session. Faculty/Staff may also park in any Commuter and Open designated parking lot using their existing Faculty/Staff hang tag.
We understand the inconvenience this will cause and respectfully ask those impacted to be patient while the much needed work is completed.
All American Drainage and Electrical Relocation
Construction to correct some drainage issues along All American Drive will be starting soon along with a project to relocate and bury the electrical services located on the south side of the road. The work is expected to last until mid-December. Expect delays and occasional one-lane traffic during the construction. Please consider this and make plans to avoid driving through the area if possible.
