In August 2012, the University of Mississippi introduced a new policy declaring the Oxford campus smoke free. Smoking is prohibited at all times, and at all locations of the University of Mississippi Oxford campus, including university-owned facilities, properties and grounds.

Help keep the Grove clean and green this football season by recycling plastic bottles and aluminum cans. Recycling bins will be located throughout the Grove and inside the stadium. Recycling bags for your tent are available at dispensers located in front of the Union and in the Circle. Remember to recycle plastic and aluminum only - one piece of food costs an entire bag of recyclables. Ole Miss thanks you for your support. For more information, click here.
