Visitors to The University of Southern Mississippi campus are always welcome. The Department of Parking Management wants you to have a safe and enjoyable visit to our campus. Please observe the following regulations:

A visitor to campus is defined as a person who is not affiliated with the university as an employee, student, contractor, or vendor. This definition excludes those persons, including spouses and family members, who operate a vehicle on campus for the benefit or convenience of an employee or a student. Visitors will obtain and display visitor permits and park in legal parking spaces. All visitors must show a valid driver's license to obtain a visitor pass.
