Department of Parking & Transportation

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.

Update! Parking and O.U.T. Operations, Effective March 18th, 2020:  

In response to the ongoing efforts by the University community to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus, the Department of Parking and Transportation is closed to the public. Questions or concerns can be addressed by emailing or by leaving a message at 662-915-7235.  We will be monitoring these channels between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. weekdays and will respond to inquiries as soon as possible.  We appreciate your cooperation and understanding.

Temporary Parking Rules Changes: 

Due to the University's response to the evolving situation concerning the COVID-19 virus, parking rules and regulations are relaxed. All motorists are allowed to park in any available legal parking space that is not reserved or restricted by posted signage.  ADA parking spaces still require an ADA credential.  Metered spaces will not require payment.  Vehicles with a South Oxford Center (SOC) decal are legal to park on main campus.

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.
