After a review of parking and traffic from the Southeast Missouri football game, the following improvements have been made to the safety and convenience of gameday parking, shuttles and traffic flow plan in order to get fans off campus and on their way home as quickly as possible.

Important notes include:

OFF-CAMPUS

  • The number of shuttles working Oxford Middle School/OPC Activity Center, Oxford Conference Center, and Jackson Avenue Center have been doubled.
  • Additional parking lots with shuttle access have been added. Fans may now also park on McElroy Dr. (400 stalls) near the Oxford Post Office and at the Northwest Community College campus (547 stalls) on Belk Rd. near Baptist Memorial Health Center.
  • All fan shuttles will begin running at 12:00 pm.
  • Increased lighting, security presence and signage are planned for all off-campus lots used by the gameday shuttle service.
  • People without parking passes can still access the Grove via University Ave., or Old Taylor Road.
  • Parking at the Whirlpool Plant has been designated gameday employee parking. We recommend you use the other available lots to park in order to avoid post-game congestion.
  • On-campus shuttles will also be provided for grove and stadium drop-offs and that map can be found at by clicking here.

ON-CAMPUS

  • Additional signage has been added to all parking areas.
  • Additional staffing will be on hand to help answer questions and get you to your designated, on-campus parking area.
  • All gameday staff have received additional training and education in preparation for this weekend’s game.
  • Gertrude Ford Blvd. will remain open to thru-traffic until 4:30 pm.
  • A shuttle bus lane has been added to post-game traffic on Coliseum Drive, Fraternity Row and Taylor Road from Hwy 6 to the roundabout to aid in the safety of those parking at off-campus lots. All other traffic will be one-way off campus following the end of the game to get as many cars off campus as safely and quickly as possible. Traffic will be allowed to travel both ways on Taylor after the game between the roundabout and University Avenue.
  • All ADA parking is sold out for this week’s game. Those requiring assistance to get to the stadium may be dropped off on Gertrude Ford Blvd. until 4:30 pm. We recommend using the off-campus lots and shuttles to most conveniently get to Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.
  • Please provide your pass to the security officers working the campus entrances for verification to gain access to campus. The stub will be removed from your pass upon entering your designated, on-campus parking lot.

More information can be found at OleMissFB.com the official gameday website for Ole Miss Football, on the radio at 1630 AM on gameday, or at one of the following links:

GATES

  • All gameday staff will be wearing “service badges” for secret shoppers and fan feedback. Please feel free to let us know about every time you receive great service by a ticket taker, usher, parking attendant, concessionaire or other gameday employee by using the unique employee number on their badge.
  • Additional express lanes will be open for those fans entering the stadium without bags and purses (Note: backpacks and bags larger than 12 x 12 are not allowed in Vaught-Hemingway Stadium on gameday).
  • Additional ticket scanners will be available at every gate.

CONCESSIONS 

  • A new concession stand with eight (8) points of sale will be opened in the south end zone.
  • All concessions staff have been retrained for speed, increased stocking of inventory and efficiency.
  • Specific staff assigned to monitor condiment levels throughout the stadium.
