Parking in Ann Arbor and on campus is often limited. However, there are many structures and some street parking around campus. In general, we recommend the Forest Avenue Parking Structure, as it is closest to our Randall Lab. For more details and maps of parking areas please visit Ann Arbor Downtown Development Authority, and UM Parking & Transport Services.
Most structures have a rate of $1.20/hr. Some structures are $1.40/hr. A list of rates for every structure is available on the Downtown Development Authority website. For a list of rates for on campus structures check out the Visitor Parking link on the Parking and Transportation Services website.
On Central Campus, free parking is available during these times:
Monday-Saturday: after 6:00pm
Sunday: All Day
Without a Car
Cabs can get you around Ann Arbor, but keep in mind that we are not a big city where you can hail a taxi at every corner. It is best to call at least one hour ahead in order to make sure that you arrive at your destination on time. There is also a reasonably extensive bus service. If staying near campus, there are a number of restaurants, coffee shops, etc., within easy walking distance.
