As a reminder, on July 1, parking permit enforcement will be restored for all parking areas on North, Medical, Central and South campuses. Parkers will be required to observe all parking control signs that indicate permits required and enforcement hours. 

Permit enforcement for all Medical Campus Structures (P1-P5, Ann, Catherine, Glen and Wall Street) is in effect as of today, June 22.

Patient/Visitor parking on Medical Center Campus, including the Wall Street area, remains enforced. 

The Parking Customer Service offices at 523 S. Division Street and UH South reopened Monday, June 15 [523 S. Division: 7:30 a.m. – 4 p.m. (M-F) / UH South: 7:30 a.m. – 3:45 p.m. (M-F)].

If visiting a parking customer service office is necessary, please observe social distancing while waiting in line. We encourage everyone to order online or return permits by mail if possible.

  • Permit holders with AVI devices that auto-renew: Your parking permit has been renewed for FY21. Payroll deductions will be restored at the end of June (last June paycheck) for the start of the new fiscal year.  
  • Permit holders with permits that do not auto-renew: An email was sent in early June with instructions to purchase a new permit for FY21.
  • Permit holders on voluntary furlough: Please do not return your parking permit by mail. University employees who take a voluntary furlough will not be required to pay for parking during the furlough period and payroll deductions are suspended. Deductions resume on your return date and are retroactive for the entire month. 
  • Permit holders working remotely longer term: If you do not want your parking payroll deductions to resume in June, please return your parking permit AVI by mail or drop-box at Thompson Structure. Remote employees may also purchase daily parking options for occasional needs. If you have a yellow or orange hang tag or sticker, those will just expire and you do not need to send in your old one.
    • Postmark by June 30, via U.S. Certified Mail, UPS or FedEx with tracking to:  Parking Customer Services, 523 S. Division St., Ann Arbor, MI 48104 (Due to the timing of payroll deductions, you may see a June payroll parking deduction even if you have mailed in or returned your permit in June.  If your permit return is postmarked by June 30, the June 2020 payroll parking deduction will be refunded to you.)
