|The main goal and purpose
of the University Police Department, located in Kinard Hall, is to provide service
and protection to The University of Mississippi's campus, properties, staff,
faculty, and students. The five divisions which compose the University Police
Department-patrol, investigation, crime prevention, security staff, and traffic/support-are
an integrated team striving to achieve excellence in police protection and to
ensure a high quality of student-faculty life by promoting a tranquil, safe
atmosphere conducive to the objectives of the University. The department is
dedicated to the protection of the University properties to ensure the beauty,
security, and safe function of the campus grounds and resources.
Students must assume responsibility for their own personal safety and security of their personal property by practicing common sense and good judgment.
One of UPD's responsibilities is handling traffic. Each student who keeps a motor vehicle on the campus must have it properly registered with the office of the University Police Department. As at most universities, Ole Miss parking spaces are at a premium. Students are restricted from driving cars in the main part of campus during class hours. The best suggestion is to leave your car in the hall parking lot and walk or ride your bike to classes. A bicycle is an ideal means of transportation at Ole Miss and in Oxford.
If you are worried about getting back to your residence after a late night at the Library, call the University Police Department at 915-7234.
Transportation and Parking
Vehicles parked on campus must display a valid parking permit purchased from the University Police Department located in Kinard Hall. Students may park on campus only in designated areas. The areas around administration and class buildings are closed to student traffic between 7:30 a.m. and 3:45 p.m., Monday-Friday.
