Parking Areas

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.
