Night Parking Ban

November 1 through April 30, between 2 a.m. and 7 a.m., parking is prohibited on campus—whether it is snowing or not. Exceptions:

  • Campus housing residents must park in their designated lot/block.
  • Employees who work an assigned shift may park in an overnight parking space assigned to them by Transportation Services.
  • To request parking during the night parking ban, you may contact the Transportation Services office during normal business hours or Public Safety and Police Services after hours. If approved, you must have a permit or pay to park at the assigned meter area you were given during your request. 
  • Campus visitors with a daily or weekly parking permit will be assigned to either Lot 24 or Lot 26. 

Snow Removal

Transportation Services posts notices in residence halls at least 24 hours in advance when lots are going to be cleared. It is the responsibility of vehicle owners to be aware of these notices and move their vehicles accordingly to avoid being ticketed and/or towed.

Parking for Persons with Disabilities

Students needing temporary accommodations should contact Disability Services to discuss options available.

To park in a space designated as disabled parking, the vehicle must have a valid disabled placard or disabled license plate issued by the Secretary of State of Michigan or the Secretary of State of another state in the United States.

Please see Transportation Services to register your handicap placard. Your valid placard will allow you to park in any space designated as disabled parking on campus. For overnight accommodations, please contact Transportation Services.
