Daily parking options for faculty and staff

April 12, 2021  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

For faculty and staff who are on campus infrequently — which is considered 60 or fewer times per permit year — here is a list of parking options:

Structure and gated lot access: For parking structures and for NC43 and NC60 (does not include Forest Street Parking Structure, P3 or P5):

Non-gated surface lot parking 

  • Scratch off permits: The month, date and year for the day parking is needed is scratched off and then displayed in the vehicle. Currently, a pack of 10 parks costs $55 ($5.50 per park). Valid in Blue, Yellow and Orange parking.
  • Printed daily permit:
    • Some staff prefer to pay the Orange/Yellow daily rate for parking ($2/$3 per day). 
    • If staff are interested in this option, they can stop by Parking Customer Services (PCS) the morning they need a parking permit and pay for just that day to park. 
    • PCS provides a paper parking permit with the date on the permit to display in the vehicle. 
    • In addition, some staff know that they work every other Monday (for example) and so will stop in to purchase permits for the month (May 1 and May 15, for example, for a total of $4/$6). 
    • This option does require staff to stop by PCS more frequently, so most staff prefer to go with the packet of 10 scratch off permits for $55. 

Obtaining/exchanging a parking permit 

Stop in to Parking Customer Services with your current permit to swap it out or purchase a daily option.

There are City of Ann Arbor parking meters in front of the PCS office (currently enforcement starts at 8 a.m. and PCS opens at 7:30 a.m.)

See the Daily Parking page for more faculty and staff information. Please note, Temporary Employee rates are different.
