Parking and transportation update

March 26, 2020  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

To support the university community, parking permit enforcement in most campus lots and structures have been relaxed. Gates are now raised in some parking areas that usually require a permit.

Permit parking

Parking permit enforcement has been suspended in many structures on the main medical campus, including Ann, Catherine, NIB and Palmer Commons. Gates are now raised to enable entry and exit.

The parking decks closest to Michigan Medicine’s patient care facilities (P1-P5) will continue to be enforced.

Please note, designated parking spaces (e.g. Accessible, Gold, Service or Business Vehicle) will remain enforced on all campuses. 

Additionally, Yellow AVI and Blue off-shift parking programs will maintain existing access to decks P1-P5 onweekends and off hours with no change. Regular weekday restrictions for these programs still apply.

Help facilitate social distancing

To assist with social distancing, please attempt to park closer to the academic medical center as opposed to parking at off-site locations and taking a bus.

For those who must park off-site, more buses have been added during peak hours to facilitate social distancing.

Patient/visitor parking

Patient/visitor parking on the main medical campus, including Wall Street, will remain enforced. The organization will continue to evaluate operations and provide updates with any service changes.
