Permit Waitlists for 2022-2023

Awaitlist option will be available for all permit classifications that have reached their initial allocation limits.  If you are interested in signing up for the waitlist, you will need to login into your My Parking Account and follow the instructions for adding yourself to the waitlist you are eligible for and interested in.  

There will be a new button Add/Edit Waitlist option that will become available.   Please remember that your status and position on a waitlist do not grant any additional privileges and are not a replacement for a permit.  You must still have a permit to park on campus, but you do not require a permit to be on a waitlist.  

The Department will continue to evaluate the parking situation and determine how many permits can be released. To help with this situation, you need to park in the correct zone for the permit you currently have.  This will help us see where the actual availability and needs are and allow us to start releasing additional permits if there is availabity.  

The Rebel Red/Blue campus shuttles will begin bus service to the Residential Garage from several north campus locations helping transport students between the further areas and the Residential parking garage.  The service will run on weekdays from 7 am to 7 pm and will be phased in during move-in. 

Please contact the DPT office at 662-915-7235 or parking@olemiss.edu if you have any questions.
