Parking Permits Required
A permit is required to park in a University parking lot or on a University drive at all times. Fall parking permits are valid through the first day of spring semester, and spring semester parking permits are valid beginning Dec. 18.
Spring semester parking permit sales began Dec. 8
Parking permits for spring semester will be available for purchase online (http://miamioh.edu/parking/permits/index.html) and in the parking office beginning Thur., Dec 8.
If you already have a Fall-only parking permit you may either exchange it at any time by bringing it into the Parking Office or you can purchase your spring permit online or in person after January 22nd.
Eligibility criteria are listed in the parking regulations at: miamioh.edu/parking/policies/. Students will receive an email when their permit is ready for pickup in the parking office. For permits purchased online, a temporary permit may be printed at the time of purchase which will be valid until Jan. 27 to allow time for the parking decal to be picked up.
Overnight Parking Available at Millett, Ditmer and Chestnut Field Lots
Student vehicles with a valid parking permit (blue or yellow) may park in the 24 hour parking sections of the west Millett or Ditmer lots or the Chestnut Fields lot over the Thanksgiving break. When parking at west Millett or Ditmer do not park where signs indicate “No overnight parking”. Overnight parking in the garages is not permitted without a garage access card and garage hang tag displayed.
Please consult the parking map or call the Parking and Transportation Services office if you are unsure of where to park over break.
Limited garage storage available over winter break
A limited number of overnight parking spaces will be available in the north parking garage (beneath the engineering building) for vehicle storage over the winter break and winter term. The spaces will be available on a first-come first-served basis and cost $160 for the winter break/term. Contact the Parking Office for details.
Loading and Unloading: How to use vehicle log-in policy
Students should utilize the log-in policy for loading and unloading their vehicles to avoid being cited. A valid permit is required to utilize the log-in procedure. Vehicles parked illegally in restricted areas, service drives, yellow zones and loading zones may be cited.
To use the log-in policy, call (513-529-2224) or email (email@example.com) the parking office with the license plate, state, make and location where the vehicle will be unloaded. You will be granted 20 minutes to load/unload your vehicle from the time you contact parking services up to 4 times per semester. If you receive a parking violation during the time you are logged in, bring it to the parking office to have it waived.
Parking on Oxford City Streets – prohibited for more than 72 consecutive hours. Play it safe and purchase a parking permit from Parking Services
Oxford city ordinances prohibit parking on city streets (including Oak St., Maple St., Patterson Ave., and Tallawanda Rd.) for more than 72 consecutive hours. Many Oxford streets are also designated as snow routes where parking is prohibited when snowfall reaches 3 inches or greater. Students living off-campus may wish to purchase a parking permit and store their vehicle in the overnight section of the west Millett lot or at the Ditmer or Chestnut Fields lots over the winter break to avoid fines, immobilization or towing for being parked over 72 hours on a city street or on a snow route in the event of snow.
Information about parking in Oxford is available on the city’s Website at: cityofoxford.org/.
