Bringing a car to campus after Thanksgiving?

Are you bringing a car back to Miami after Thanksgiving Break, but don’t have a permit?

Occasionally students who did not already have a car on campus return with one after Thanksgiving break for the remainder of the fall semester. If you are planning to do this, here’s what you need to know:

  • A parking permit is required to park on campus at all times.
  • You may purchase two (2) one-week permits online for $15 each. Log in to your student parking account, add your license plate & vehicle info, click “buy permits” and scroll down to “Temporary (daily, weekly) permits”. Purchase a one-week for 11/27-12/3 and then purchase the second week 12/4-12/10.
  • These are yellow, residential student permits that will allow parking in the West Millett parking lot 24 hours a day.
  • Avoid the Commuter Permits section of Millett lot because it does not allow overnight parking. See the map below.
  • The U4 bus visits this lot every 15 minutes so you can catch a ride to and from the lot.
  • In the evenings and on weekends permitted vehicles may park in the campus core near the residence halls, Rec Center, etc, but you must move your car to Millett West lot by 7 am weekdays or you may get a $75 ticket. See the posted signs around campus for the times those lots allow yellow permit parking.
  • If you have a parking permit and need to pull up in front of your dorm to load or unload your car, call or email the Parking Office first and let us know your name, dorm, license plate and time you will be parked there. We will log it into the system and give you 20 minutes to load or unload. If you receive a ticket during that time, let us know, and we will waive it.
