Additional parking changes will impact University parking lots and structures that will be converted to Move-In use only for the duration of the program.

University lots and structures that will be converted to Move-In only are as follows:

  1. Lot M-28 (on Washington Heights)
  2. Lot M-95 (just east of Markley Hall – west half of lot dedicated to Move-In)
  3. Lot E-1 (on N. University Court across from Stockwell Hall)
  4. Palmer Parking Structure (N-26):  All visitor parking will be for Move-In participants

DPSS officers and staff will be on site during Move-In and will aid in maintaining efficient traffic-flow in the residence hall areas.

Both the Ann Arbor Area Transit Authority and University Parking and Transportation Services will be changing some bus routes to accommodate the changes in traffic flow.  Please visit their websites for details.
