Parking

The Thayer Street Parking Structure will remain open to U-M permit holders. U-M permit holders will be able to access the structure via East Washington Street to South Thayer.  The Church Street Parking Structure will remain open to U-M permit holders, who can access the structure via North University to Church.

Lots C5 (libraries) and C10 (the small surface parking lot by West Hall) will not be available for parking.

During the Art Fair days, all U-M parking structures will remain gated to only allow vehicles with appropriate U-M permits to enter. After 3:30 p.m. on weekdays and all day Saturday, special event parking permits also will be sold at the structures where adequate vacancies occur.
