Parking Garage Free Trial!

Park-N-Ride Lots Added to ParkerApp

Notice to all Park-N-Ride users, parking at the Jackson Avenue Center (old Mall) has been at or near capacity between the hours of 10:00am and Noon some days of the week.  Please remember that the university is required to maintain a specific area of parking for the commercial customers. Students and staff parked out of the UM Park-N-Ride Zone may be ticketed.  When the JAC lot reaches capacity, Park-N-Ride users are required to use the South Lot Park-N-Ride lot located off of Highway 6.  To make the utilization of these lots more convenient, the JAC and SouthLot have been added to the Ole Miss parking lots tracked by the ParkerApp.  For more information visit .
