Summer is winding down and the new school year is almost here. The University of Mississippi has been gradually improving the campus and, as a result, there are some parking and bus route changes.

Here are a few things you need to know to make sure you get where you need to be on time as you access the Ole Miss campus.

  1. Summer parking rule exceptions end Aug. 17 and zone enforcement of driver decals will resume. Commuters, faculty and staff will no longer be able to park in residential zones.
  2. All parking decals from the 2014-2015 academic year expire Aug. 15. All cars on campus will be required to have either a valid temporary or permanent parking permit. Faculty, staff and students must order their permits online, which can be done at any computer or at the kiosks located at the Department of Parking and Transportation inside Lester Hall, open 7:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. weekdays.
  3. Due to the start of construction on the Ole Miss Student Union, 30-minute parking is no longer available at the Union lot.
  4. Park-N-Ride service resumes Aug. 17. Commuters with Park-N-Ride permits will be required to park at the Jackson Avenue Center/Brown Line or South Lot/Gold Line areas at that time.
  5. Residential Park-N-Ride permit holders will be required to park at the Whirlpool lot from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays beginning Aug. 17.
  6. Weekday shuttle service, on-call weeknight van service and nightly guard service for motorists parked at the Residential Park-N-Ride Whirlpool Lot will also begin Aug. 17.
  7. All city OUT bus routes will resume full service Aug. 17.
  8. Hill Drive will remain closed until the first day of classes, Aug. 24, affecting both the Green Line and the Gold Line.
  9. The new Kennon Observatory bus stop will not be available for use until Aug. 26. Until it is completed, the Gold Line will drop off passengers near the athletics administration building as it travels from the South Lot.
  10. The Green Line will no longer use Old Taylor Road to enter campus beginning Aug. 24. Instead, the Green Line will access campus using Chucky Mullins Drive and Hill Drive. Students who use the Green Line to get to the Music Building will need to use the bus stop in front of the Yerby Center.
  11. Once the Kennon Observatory bus stop is completed, the Green, Yellow and Gold lines will pick up and drop off passengers there.
