I have two vehicles. Can I purchase two hangtags?
No. Only one permit is allowed per faculty member, staff member and student. (The only exception to this rule is a motorcycle or bicycle permit.)

My hangtag hasn't arrived. What do I do?
When you order your hangtag online, you will be given the option to print a temporary pass that can be used for 10 business days. (To use it, it must be displayed on your dashboard.) You must order your hangtag prior to Aug. 9 to receive it before returning to campus for the beginning of classes. Students that order after Aug. 9 will have their permits shipped to the Office of Parking and Transportation in Lester Hall and will have to pick them up in person.

Can my friend use my hangtag?
Hangtags can be moved between vehicles, but if your friend parks in an area not designated for that hangtag, you will be responsible for paying the ticket.

Where will my hangtag be mailed?
Your hangtag will be mailed to your permanent address. You can change this address in myOleMiss as a student or employee.

Reserved Parking

I'm a faculty/staff member. Can I pick my reserved spot?
Faculty and staff who are willing to spend more for added convenience ($600 annually) will have access to a limited number of reserved spots. Once these spots have been filled, no additional reserved stalls will be available. Beginning July 1, you can request a reserved spot during the online vehicle registration process. You will be asked to rank your top areas of campus where you'd most like your spot to be located. These limited spots are not guaranteed and will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. The Department of Parking and Transportation Services will let you know which spot you have received. At that time, you can choose whether or not you'd like to reserve that spot.

Game Day

I live on campus. Where do I park my car on football game weekends?
You will be able to park in the residential lot designated for your hangtag. Residential parking lots are the only areas that are protected on football game weekends. All other university hangtags will not be valid on game days.


I'm a visitor and just received a ticket. What do I do?
All visitors are required to have the appropriate permit displayed. Any citations received must be paid through the Department of Parking and Transportation. Please see back of citation for more information/details.


What is the quickest way to get on and off campus?
Park in a Park & Ride lot and ride into campus. Buses arrive every five to 10 minutes and drop off at Guyton Hall, Paris-Yates Chapel and Kennon Observatory.

How many parking spots are on campus?
The university has nearly 12,000 parking stalls available across campus.

How many people ride the OUT bus?
UM students, faculty and staff made up nearly 95 percent of the more than 456,000 total rides in the eight months since August 2012.
