Student in Parking Lot

Bicycles

All bicycles on the University of Mississippi Oxford Campus are required to obtain an annual bicycle permit.  Effective July 1st, 2014 Registration cost is $3.

You must register your bike in person at the Department of Parking and Transportation offices in Lester Hall. Please have your serial number, make, model, color and personal information available before you register.

Why is registration required

Mandatory registration helps the University gather data to determine if there are adequate services like bike racks and locations, on campus bike routes and other related amenities. Registration is also the best way to help recover a bicycle in the event it is lost or stolen.

Registration for Active Students and Staff

Students and Staff with active bursar or payroll accounts at the University can have the $3 fee charged to their University account.

Registration for Visitors

Visitors that frequent the University Campus between 8am and 5pm Monday through Friday are still required to obtain a permit/decal for their bicycles. Unlike visitors in cars, the decal is good for the full academic year. Visitors should come to the Department of Parking and Transportation offices in Lester Hall and fill out a registration form. The $3 fee will be required at the time of registration.

Other Things to Know

When riding a bike in any public space, a cyclist is required to follow the same rules and regulations as a motorized vehicle. It is the cyclist responsibility to know and understand these regulations. These rules apply to both the University campus and the City of Oxford.

University of Mississippi - Rules and Regulations regarding parking and vehicle use (motorized and non-motorized) can be found HERE. Section 'k' details the bicycle policy but bicycles are referenced in other sections, particularly those related to handicap access areas.

Also, reference University Policy Code UPD.GP.100.002 and DSA.SH.400.004 regarding abandoned bicycles.
