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.

Need a Replacement Parking Permit?

If your permit never arrived by mail, has been lost or damaged, or you have a completely new vehicle other than the one you initially registered your parking permit for, you must get a replacement parking permit.

Click this link <HERE> to print the replacement form. Once completely filled out, please email the form to parking@olemiss.edu. We will prepare your replacement permit and have it ready for pick up when you arrive at our office. Replacement permits are subject to incurring a $5.00 replacement fee. The fee will automatically be charged to the student’s Bursar account.

Our office is located in the South Campus Recreation Center. Our lobby hours are 7:30 AM – 4:30 PM. For questions/concerns, please call (662) 915-7235.

O.U.T. Operations Effective Sept. 14th, 2020

Park-N-Ride and Other OUT Changes:

Due to low utilization, Gold route shuttle service to the South Lot/Park-N-Ride parking lot will be suspended starting September 14th until the start of the spring semester.  Park-N-Ride permit holders who utilize the South Lot will need to park at alternate locations such as the Jackson Avenue Center Park-N-Ride areas or the South Campus Recreation Center Park-N-Ride areas.  Please click <HERE> for a map showing the available Park-N-Ride options.

The dedicated Silver route shuttle service between the South Campus Recreation Center and Kennon Observatory will also be discontinued until the spring.  Riders between these locations should use the Old Taylor Road Express route or the Green route buses. 

Additional changes to OUT operations during this time involve a reduction in the number of buses operating on various routes.  These routes include: the Old Taylor Road Express, Yellow, Hathorn Express, Bronze, and Green. Service reduction in some cases will reduce bus frequency, extending the time between available buses. Reduced city and campus traffic congestion during this time will help lessen the impact to service but riders should still be prepared for longer wait times and should plan accordingly. 

Fall 2020 Bus Operations:

  • Oxford University Transit (O.U.T.) has resumed operations with most standard routes operating on a normal schedule.  Some reductions in bus allocations may occur.
  • The Rebel Red campus circulator shuttle (counter-clockwise) will not operate this fall but the Rebel Blue campus circulator shuttle (clockwise) will operate with two buses in order to provide a more consistent service for the shuttle.  Buses should operate on a 10 minute schedule.  Riders that used the Rebel Red bus stop locations in the past will need to identify the closest Rebel Blue stop. 
  • The Gold Line bus service to the South Lot will suspend operations starting on Sept. 14th and until the spring 2021. Riders use to using the South Lot are recommended to switch to the South Campus Recreation Center.
  • All Oxford University Transit (O.U.T) buses are equipped with hand sanitizer dispensers and are routinely cleaned and disinfected.  Buses are equipped with additional protections for riders and the drivers.  Seating capacity is limited on all buses and all riders must be seated (no standing). 
  • Riders are required to wear a mask at all times while at a crowded bus shelter and while riding a bus.  Riders should allow a minimum of six feet of clearance for arriving buses to disembark riders prior to approaching to board a bus.
  • Please DO NOT ride Oxford University Transit (O.U.T.) buses if you are experiencing Covid-19 or other flu like symptoms. 
  • The Oxford University Transit (O.U.T.) website which should include routes and schedules is linked to the right. 

Please contact the DPT office at 662-915-7235 or parking@olemiss.edu if you have any questions.
