Visitor Parking

Welcome! As a guest of the University of Mississippi it is our hope that your parking experience is a pleasant one. All vehicles parked on the university campus are required to have a University parking permit of some type.  As a visitor, there are several options when it comes to purchasing your visitor permit for your vehicle.

Online Visitor Passes

Visitor permits may be purchased online and printed ahead of arrival on the University of Mississippi Oxford campus. Permits purchased online are limited to the Daily Rate (see below) only and may be purchased for up to 7 consecutive days on a single purchase. Weekends are included in the 7 day period but are at no cost. Please read below to know where visitors can and cannot park.

NOTICE! Current students and staff of the University are not eligible to purchase Visitor Passes. Pass holders identified as students or staff who improperly provided false information to obtain a Visitor Pass are subject to citation and possible vehicle immobilization.



Visitor Parking Rates

You may purchase a daily permit from the Welcome Center located on University Avenue as you enter the Lyceum Circle, the Parking and Transportation main office, or online using the link above.

This may be purchased at the Parking and Transportation main office.

This permit is prorated by time remaining in the permit sale year (July 2024 to June 2025) and may be purchased at the Parking and Transportation main office.


Where to Park

Parking Lots - The Lyceum Circle and University Avenue just beyond the Welcome Center are designated visitor parking areas on campus. Visitors with current Visitor Permits may also park in any non-reserved valid parking space in the faculty/staff and/or commuter parking zones based on availability.
Metered Parking - There is also metered parking available at a rate of $1.75 per hour. See the campus map for metered parking locations. Visitors parking at metered locations are not required to purchase a permit but are required to pay for time while parked regardless of the presence of a parking pass. 

We hope you enjoy your visit to Ole Miss!
