Plan ahead: Student move-in is almost here!
Video games, beanbag chairs, excited freshmen, traffic and parking changes — ah, yes, student move-in is almost here!
Next week, thousands of U-M undergraduates will be heading back to campus for a new school year. As they do, please be advised that there will be multiple changes to usual traffic and parking patterns around Michigan Medicine facilities.
Here’s what you need to know:
Move-in will take place right before the holiday weekend, from Wednesday, Aug. 29 through Friday, Aug. 31.
Some streets in the immediate vicinity of residence halls and the academic medical center will see traffic-flow alterations from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. on all three dates:
- Thompson Street will be one-way southbound from Jefferson to Packard streets.
- East Madison will be one-way eastbound between Thompson and State streets.
- East Washington will be one-way westbound between Fletcher and Thayer streets.
- East Ann will be one-way eastbound from Zina Pitcher to Observatory.
- Observatory will be one-way southbound between East Ann and Geddes.
Most, if not all, parking meters in the immediate vicinity of residence halls will be bagged and reserved for students and families who display proper move-in unloading permits.
Additional parking changes will impact university parking lots and structures that will be converted to move-in only for the duration of the program. These lots include:
- Lot M28 (on Washington Heights)
- Lot M95 (just east of Markley Hall — the west half of the lot will be dedicated to move-in)
- Lot E1 (on N. University Court acorss from Stockwell Hall)
- Palmer Parking Structure (N26) — All visitor parking will be designated for move-in participants
- W16 (triangle) lot located on Thompson at Madison and Packard
- NC32 — 20 spaces will be reserved for move-in parkers only
Please note that the Thompson and Hill parking structures will also be used for overflow move-in parking.
Uniformed housing security officers and university police officers will be on-site during move-in and will assist in maintaining efficient traffic flow in the residence hall areas.
Both the Ann Arbor Area Transit Authority and University Logistics, Transportation and Parking Services will be changing some bus routes to accommodate the changes in traffic flow. Please visit their websites for details.
