Student Move-In to bring traffic, parking changes Aug. 29-31

This year’s student Move-In is expected to be as big and bustling as ever, and campus community members can expect changes to the usual traffic and parking patterns from Aug. 29 through Aug. 31, right before the Labor Day weekend.

University Housing is coordinating Move-In to manage the traffic impact on the Ann Arbor and campus communities.

With the cooperation of the city of Ann Arbor, some streets in the immediate vicinity of residence halls will see traffic-flow alterations from 7 a.m-8 p.m. on all three Move-In days.

Traffic alterations are:

• Thompson Street — One-way traffic flow southbound from Jefferson to Packard streets.

• East Madison Street — One-way traffic flow eastbound between Thompson and State streets.

• East Washington Street — One-way traffic flow westbound between Fletcher and Thayer streets.

• East Ann Street — One-way traffic flow eastbound from Zina Pitcher to Observatory streets.

• Observatory Street — One-way traffic flow southbound between E. Ann and Geddes streets.

Most parking meters in the immediate vicinity of residence halls will be bagged and reserved for students and families who display the proper Move-In unloading permit.

Additional parking changes will affect university parking lots and structures that will be converted to Move-In-only use for the duration of the program.

University lots and structures that will be converted to Move-In-only are:

• Lot M-28 (on Washington Heights).

• Lot M-95 (just east of Markley Hall, west half of lot dedicated to Move-In).

• Lot E-1 (on North University Court across from Stockwell Hall).

• Palmer Parking Structure (N-26): All visitor parking will be for Move-In participants.

• W16 (“Triangle”) Lot: Thompson at Madison and Packard streets will be controlled for Move-In.

• Lot NC32 (Baits Drive south of Baits 2), 20 spaces reserved for Move-In participants.

Uniformed Housing Security officers and University Police officers will be on site during Move-In and will aid in maintaining efficient traffic-flow in the residence hall areas.

The Ann Arbor Area Transit Authority and university Logistics, Transportation and Parking will be changing some bus routes to accommodate the changes in traffic flow. Please visit their websites for details.
