Move-in to affect campus traffic flow, parking

From University Housing

U-M and city of Ann Arbor plans call for 12 streets near campus to have non-standard traffic flow 6 a.m.–9 p.m. Aug. 28–31 during fall student move-in.

Also, commercial vendors will be selling items to students at three campus locations: the Triangle parking lot at Madison, Thompson and Packard streets; the Stockwell Hall parking lot; and the Bursley Hall parking lot.

The move-in program is designed to ease traffic congestion on and around campus, and to help ensure as little delay as possible to University and Ann Arbor commuters. Parents and students are directed not to arrive on campus before 9 a.m. or to drive on or around campus 4–6 p.m. This will give University staff and downtown workers an opportunity to get to work in the morning and depart from the campus and downtown area in the evening.

University faculty and staff are encouraged to choose travel routes away from residence halls when possible, allowing freer passage to and from campus. Should travel near residence halls be unavoidable, officers from University Housing Security, the Department of Public Safety and the Ann Arbor Police Department will be stationed near key intersections to keep traffic moving and to direct students to unloading spaces by each hall.

Parking lot closures and changes will affect some of the University community. Affected lots include:

  • Thompson Street parking lot: During the move-in days, this lot will be accessible from Division Street only.

  • Triangle parking lot at Thompson, Packard and Madison streets: This lot will be closed Aug. 25–31.

  • Bursley Hall parking lot and Washington Heights parking lot: Several parking spaces will be displaced Aug. 25–31.
