Other than for the accommodation of a disability, the use of any wheeled or mechanical transportation in the Ole Miss Student Union is strictly prohibited. This prohibition includes, but is not limited to, bicycles, skateboards, skates, hoverboards, scooters, and wheeled shoes.

Due to the risk of fire, no form of transportation may be plugged into an electrical outlet inside or outside of the Ole Miss Student Union to charge. Bicycle racks are provided outside of the Ole Miss Student Union to store bicycles when not in use. Bicycles are not to be left unattended or attached to the building at any time.

Posting of Flyers/Posters at the Ole Miss Student Union

Posting or displaying fliers, posters, handbills, advertisements, etc. inside or outside of the Student Union on any interior or exterior surface, such as columns, windows, doors, kiosks, etc., and outside designated areas is prohibited. This policy includes the use of sidewalk chalk on the building, steps, and Student Union Plaza. 


Under IHL policy, the University grounds, buildings, and other facilities are not generally available to outside organizations.  As such, the University prohibits solicitation on campus, except as permitted by this policy.  Solicitation is defined as attempting to sell or providing promotional or informational materials intended to promote, sell, or advertise a good, service, or organization.  This policy does not apply to vendors who are working under a contract to do business with the University. Solicitation on campus may only occur at tables located on The Gertrude C. Ford Ole Miss Student Union (“OMSU”) Plaza.

Table Reservations

In order to ensure that table reservations conducted at the Student Union are in accordance with established policies and procedures, the Ole Miss Student Union retains the authorization to supervise table reservations in the Student Union. Reservations are made through the Ole Miss Student Union, where the reservation agreement must be completed. Rental is open to all registered student organizations and campus departments – there is no charge for this rental. Space for student organizations or campus departments is available on the Grove Sidewalk and in respective Union Plaza spaces from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Monday – Friday.

Unaccompanied Minors

The Ole Miss Student Union serves as a center of campus life for Ole Miss students, guests, alumni, and the general public.  Although everyone is welcome, the Student Union does not have the resources to act as a safe space for unaccompanied minors. Therefore, parents or guardians are responsible for, and assume all liability for, their minor(s) in or around the Ole Miss Student Union. In addition, the Student Union reserves the right to restrict or deny access, or remove any unescorted or unsupervised minors from the facility at its discretion.
