Help keep the traffic flowing on move-in day: Plan to use the parking garages Thursday, Aug. 25 (photo by Scott Kissell).

The Miami University community will welcome the class of 2020 to campus Wednesday, Aug. 24-Thursday, Aug. 25. Sophomores, juniors and seniors will move into residence halls on Saturday, Aug. 27. To help with the efficient arrival and move in, parking restrictions will be in effect on these days.

The following parking lots will be restricted to short-term parking for unloading for incoming families only.

Miami employees may not park in these areas, but instead are encouraged to use one of the university parking garages (available for no fee) or park in a remote lot and use transit to arrive on campus on these days.

Signs will be posted along streets and at parking lot entrances where parking is restricted.
