Gameday Parking Map

OXFORD, Miss. - In order to make football gameday parking more accessible and safer, Ole Miss is announcing a new campus parking plan beginning with the 2013 season.

Beginning this week, all Ole Miss Athletics Foundation members have the opportunity to request a season parking pass on campus. In the past, that privilege was reserved for only those at the highest giving levels of the Athletics Foundation, but now it is open to all members by visiting www.givetoathletics.com.

"Having the nation's best gameday atmosphere means constantly striving to improve all aspects of the experience," said Ross Bjork, Ole Miss Director of Athletics. "As our crowds and demand continue to grow, a new organized parking model was necessary to ensure our fans, season ticket holders and donors are afforded the centralized lots on campus. Our fans, alumni and friends are the backbone of our athletics department, and we are excited to provide them this opportunity first."

As part of the new plan, all campus parking on gameday will require a parking pass. In addition, parking on sidewalks will be prohibited to better ensure safety and to fulfill requirements recently mandated for ADA parking.

"After thoroughly reviewing our gameday parking situation and discussing it with numerous stakeholders involved, we are confident there are opportunities to make real improvements to the gameday experience when it comes to parking and transportation options," said Isaac Astill, Ole Miss Director of Parking & Transportation. "The new model will ensure increased fairness, safety, compliance with ADA regulations and a more pleasant environment coming to and leaving an Ole Miss game."

For those unable to obtain one of the approximately 6,000 campus parking passes, more shuttles with greater convenience will be available from locations off campus. The university is working with the City of Oxford to finalize the new shuttle service plan, and those details will be announced in the coming months.

Residential housing (dormitory and fraternity/sorority parking) lots will be excluded from the gameday parking plan, and special provisions will be made for faculty with Saturday work needs on campus. Also exempt are overnight guests at The Inn at Ole Miss and those with Grove Society and Alumni Drive parking passes.

Key Points

- The plan is designed to reserve the approximately 6,000 gameday campus parking spots for Ole Miss fans.  

- All Athletics Foundation members will have an opportunity to secure season parking spots (based on priority) before the general public date on August 1. As recently announced, Foundation membership now starts at just $50. Also, all season ticket holders that have a per-seat donation with their tickets are already members.

- Safety is absolutely critical.

- The plan applies ONLY to the seven home football gamedays.
