Find out where to park during spring break

Photo of a blue carSpring break brings a few parking restrictions, including on the Millett lot where line painting will occur.

Millett parking lot restrictions

Parking in the west Millett parking lot will be restricted during the week of March 21-27 for painting. Park in the Ditmer Field or Chestnut Fields holding lots instead of west Millett so staff may complete the work quickly and to avoid potential damage from paint overspray.

Parking permits required: Temporary permits available online at $10 per week  

A permit is required to park in a university parking lot or on a university drive at all times. A student may obtain up to four weeks of temporary permit privileges each semester for his or her own vehicle only. Temporary permits may be purchased online or at the parking and transportation services office, 128 Campus Ave. Building, 513-529-2224. There is a $10 fee per week.  If you plan to bring a car to campus before or following spring break, you may go online to purchase and print your temporary permit before parking on campus.

Locations where overnight parking is permitted  

Student vehicles with a valid permit (blue or yellow) may park in the Ditmer Field or Chestnut Fields parking lots for the duration of spring break. No overnight parking is permitted in Miami’s parking garage unless a student has already purchased overnight parking access.  

Parking on Oxford City Streets – prohibited for more than 72 consecutive hours  

Play it safe and purchase a temporary parking permit from Miami's parking services. Oxford city ordinances prohibit parking on city streets (including Oak St., Maple St., Patterson Ave., and Tallawanda Rd.) for more than 72 consecutive hours. Many Oxford streets are also designated as snow routes where parking is prohibited when snowfall reaches 3 inches or greater.  

Students living off-campus may wish to purchase a temporary parking permit and park in the Ditmer Field or Chestnut Fields parking lots over spring break to avoid fines, immobilization or towing for being parked over 72 hours on a city street or on a snow route in the event of snow. Information about parking in Oxford is available on the city’s website at:
