Student in Parking Lot

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.

NOTICE! Parking Restrictions Return to Normal on 1/21/2020!

The Spring Semester starts on Tuesday January 21st, 2019. On the 21st, all parking zone restriction enforcement returns to normal along with the return of Park-N-Ride bus service to the Jackson Avenue Center and the South Lot. All vehicles must be parked in zones that are authorized by their classification of parking permit. Commuters and Faculty-Staff will no longer be able to park in student residential zones. Vehicles with a Park-N-Ride permit must park at either the Jackson Avenue center in the white lined areas as appropriate, the South Lot or the South Campus Recreation Center PNR areas. All other parking restrictions will continue to be enforced.

Please feel free to email for any questions.

NOTICE! Bus System Changes for Spring 2020!

The Oxford-University Transit system will be making some mid-year changes to the number of vehicles serving several routes on campus and in the city. The Rebel Red and Rebel Blue campus circulator shuttle will be reduced to one bus in each direction. This is a reduction of two buses and will reduce overall service on the route. Headway scheduling (the time between buses) will increase to 20 minutes or more in either direction.

Additionally, the Silver Line, which serves as a connector between the Park-N-Ride areas at the new South Campus Recreation Center (SCRC) and the Kennon Observatory Transportation Hub, will be incorporated into the Green Line and the Old Taylor Road Express (OTR). Both the Green and the OTR lines previously stopped at SCRC on their route heading to and away from Kennon. These two lines should still provide a comparable headway scheduling to the other Park-N-Ride services (Gold and Bronze).

Riders that routinely utilize these affected lines should be aware of the reduced service and should plan accordingly. As always, traffic and construction may result in further delays.
