Miami's faculty and staff may now begin renewing and purchasing their 2013-14 Oxford campus parking permits at the parking services website only (www.miamioh.edu/parking); permits will be sent via campus mail to the employee's work address.
Parking permits will be available in the parking office after June 10. The current 2012-13 parking permits will expire on June 30. For 2013-14, the hangtag will be replaced with a more durable tag which should prove to be longer-lasting. The color of the validation decal will indicate the parking areas in which the vehicle may park.
Step-by-step instructions for using the online parking services system are available at: parking/instructions.
Miami employees and graduate assistants receive red parking permits for an annual fee of $30, which allow parking in all surface lots and streets on Miami’s campus where parking is permitted. A white holding-areas parking permit is available to faculty, staff and graduate assistants at no cost and allows parking only in the Ditmer or West Millett parking lots. Permits purchased online may be payroll-deducted on a pre-tax basis.
Parking citations for not displaying a valid permit ($35) or being parked in a restricted area ($75) will be issued for vehicles in violation. A complete digest of Miami’s motor vehicle parking regulations can be viewed at: parking polices.
Faculty and staff may also purchase daytime-only parking garage access cards for an annual cost of $300. These access cards allow parking in the garages between 6 a.m. and 2 a.m. daily (no overnight parking). Hourly garage rates are $1 for the first hour and 50 cents for each additional hour with a daily maximum of $10; the lost ticket fee is $10.
“Smart” parking meters are available for short-term parking needs on campus at Shriver Center, Bonham House, Hughes Hall and Wells Hall. The meters are limited to 45 minutes Monday through Friday between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m., and 2 hours at all other times. Parking meters are enforced from 7 a.m. until 10 p.m. seven days a week. The cost is 25 cents for 15 minutes and the meters will accept coins, credit and debit cards.
No parking permit is required to park in garages or at meters on Miami’s campus, however, hourly fees must be paid.
