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 go on sale December 3 and are valid Dec. 18 to May 18.
For Winter Break and Winter Term (Dec 17th at 7 am to Jan 28th at 7 am): Cars with yellow permits may park in red-permitted spaces at all times, as they may on weekends during the regular school year.
Overnight Parking Available at Millett, Ditmer and Chestnut Field Lots
Student vehicles with a valid parking permit (blue or yellow) may leave their cars in the west Millett, Ditmer or Chestnut Fields lots over the winter break and Winter Term. When parking in these lots, do not park where signs indicate “No overnight parking”. Please consult the parking map or call the Parking and Transportation Services office if you are unsure of where to park over break.
Garage vehicle storage available over Winter Break
If you wish to leave your car in a covered garage for Winter Break & Winter Term, spaces will be available in the North parking garage (by the Engineering Building) for vehicle storage. If you already have a garage permit you do not need to purchase this additional access. If you do not have a garage permit you may purchase this option with or without a yellow permit. This option costs $160 for the winter break/term. Please contact the Campus Services Center to have this access added to your ID card.
Loading and Unloading: How to use the vehicle log-in policy
If you need to pull up in front of your residence hall at a time when you ordinarily would not be allowed to park there you may utilize the log-in policy below to load or unload your vehicle 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 firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and the location where your vehicle will be parked. You will be granted 20 minutes to load/unload your vehicle from the time you leave a message with the Parking Office. If you receive a parking violation during the time you are logged in, contact the Parking Office with the ticket number and we will waive it. Students may use this procedure up to 4 times per semester
Oxford prohibits parking on city streets for more than 72 consecutive hours.
Oxford city ordinances prohibit parking on city streets for more than 72 consecutive hours (including streets that pass through campus such as Oak St., Maple St., Patterson Ave., and Tallawanda Rd.). Many Oxford streets are also designated as snow routes where parking is prohibited when snowfall reaches 3 inches or greater. Off-campus students can purchase a parking permit and store their vehicle in west Millett, 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
Information about parking in Oxford is available on the city’s Website at: cityofoxford.org/.
