Students and Residents

Most single-family homes in Oxford have on-site parking for residents. Many neighborhoods also feature on-street parking for residents and visitors. Some neighborhoods have Residential Permit Parking restrictions.

Uptown Business Employees

The City of Oxford encourages Uptown business employees to park at 10-hour meters surrounding the Uptown area. The 10-hour meters can be found in the Uptown Parking Lot and on Church Street and Walnut Street. Staff should not park in the 2-hour meters. These meters are meant for customer parking and to encourage residents and visitors to come into our town.

Employees may also park in the Uptown Parking Garage, paying either at the meters, using the ParkMobile app, or purchasing a parking pass. Passes can be purchased at the Oxford Police Station, or you can request information by calling (513) 524-5240 or emailing Garage parking passes sell out quickly each year.

As our deployment of smart meters increases, we envision stronger enforcement of the two-hour limit.
