Parking Areas

Photo of students in a classroom setting.

Miami University has two parking garages and approximately 100 parking meters on campus which do not require a parking permit for use. Garage and meter fees must be paid for the time parked at either type facility.

A parking permit is required to park on Miami University's campus and the streets which run through or adjoin campus at all times unless otherwise noted.

All of Miami's parking areas are color-coded based on parking privilege:

  • RED areas - surface lots on campus in the area of academic and administrative buildings
  • BLUE areas - surface lots on campus in the area of residence halls for students
  • WHITE areas - remote lots for university employees and visitors
  • YELLOW areas - remote/holding lots for students

The area in which a vehicle may park is determined by the color of its parking permit; it may also park in areas which are listed below its color in the list above.

Handicap/Accessible Parking

Handicap parking spaces are located in each parking lot and parking facility. A valid state-issued disability placard is required IN ADDITION TO a Miami University parking permit in order to park in a handicap parking space on Miami University's campus. A vehicle displaying a valid state-issued disability placard in addition to any valid Miami University parking permit may park in any legal parking space on the Oxford campus, regardless of the permit restriction on the lot.

Garages and Meters

Parking Garages

  • The two parking garages on campus are open to the public daily.  Be sure to visit our Parking Permits page for specific options and prices.
  • Beginning July 1, 2017, students and employees who prepay for parking garage access will use their Miami University ID card for entry and exit at the facilities instead of the separate prox card issued by parking services. Please return old prox cards by dropping them in the box at the exit from the garages.
  • The cost of South Garage access has been reduced by 50% for employees in 2017-18 to accommodate individuals who may have been displaced by the Admission Guest parking areas on Maple St.
  • If you lose your entry ticket or experience other issues entering or exiting the parking facilities, press the intercom button on the entry or exit column to be connected to an operator who can assist.
  • University departments and offices may purchase single-use garage vouchers to allow guests to exit either parking garage at no charge. See Garage Vouchers for more information and to place an order.
