If you would like unlimited garage access you will need to first purchase your surface lot permit and then click “Purchase” again to see the garage options that can be added to your surface lot permit. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
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.
Move-in week is quickly approaching! We have a few quick updates about parking to help make moving in as easy as possible. Families and students DO NOT need to purchase a parking permit for move-in week (August 15 through August 21). Additionally, our parking meters and garages are free during move-in week. When families come to visit in the future, you will need to register your vehicle with a one-day visitor permit, or use our meters and garages – but move-in week is free.
Parking permits for the 2022-23 school year go on sale in the first week of August. All students will receive an email in the first week of August with details regarding parking on campus and a link to purchase parking permits, if they are eligible.
Please make sure you are checking your Miami email account regularly so that you do not miss this or other important messages from Miami!
Parents and students DO NOT need to purchase a parking permit for move-in week (Aug 16 to 22). Our parking meters and garages are free this week as well, in order to make moving in as easy as possible. When you come to visit in the future you will need to register your vehicle with a one-day visitor permit, or use our meters and garages – but this week is free.
Faculty and staff parking permits for 2021-2022 will be available starting on June 21, and will be valid beginning July 1.
Faculty and staff will receive an email on June 21 inviting them to purchase their red permit for the year online. Permit costs remain the same as previous years. All permit prices can be found on the parking website.
Full-time employees may have the cost of their permits payroll deducted over the course of the school year, or pay in full with a credit card online. Graduate Assistant red permits are deducted in two installments. Learn more on the parking website at www.miamioh.edu/parking.
Miami University employees will not be charged for parking permits this academic year (2020-2021).
Parking enforcement will continue as usual, so permits are still required to park on campus. Employees who park on campus should register for a red permit, which will be free.
If employees have not already done so, they should log into their account in the parking portal and purchase their annual red permit via payroll deduction. The parking software will indicate that they are being charged $125 for the year. However, the payroll office will not do the deductions.
The free red permit for the year applies to Miami employees only, including graduate assistants. It does not apply to students, contractors, visitors, or anyone who works on campus but whose paycheck does not come directly from the university’s payroll office.
Miami has a record of those employees who already purchased their permits using credit cards. The Campus Services Center will contact those employees to let them know how the university will be refunding those payments — automatically, by check, or if they will need them to bring their credit card to the office in the south lobby of Nellie Craig Hall, formerly the Campus Avenue Building, 301 S. Campus Ave.
Regarding garage and other permits:
• Garage permits will still be deducted at the regular monthly rate (less the red permit charge). Those permits cost $25 per month for the North Garage and $12.50 per month for the South Garage.
• If an employee bought a $30 carpool permit or a free white permit, they may email Parking@MiamiOH.edu and request a red permit instead and a refund of the carpool permit fee.
Given our revised return to campus date, faculty & staff parking permits will not be required on the Oxford Campus until September 1, 2020. Permit sales will begin at the end of August. The annual cost of the permit will be reduced by two months, as July and August will not be included or required this year. At the end of August you will receive another reminder along with more details about how to purchase your 2020-2021 parking permit. Staff who bought garage permits in the last school year will be able to continue to access the garage through September 1.
