Driving Directions/Parking

To Central Campus

Ann Arbor Parking

UM Visitor Parking Information - The closest visitor parking structure is the Palmer Structure ($.70/half hour = $12.60 for 9hrs).  The Palmer structure is about an 8-10 minute walk to SPH1.  There are parking meters outside SPH, but they have a 2 or 4 hour time limit. If you use the Interactive Campus Map for directions, the Palmer Structure is not listed, use either USB or LSI as you will come out of the parking structure near one of those 2 buildings. The School of Public Health is located on the Medical Campus map, just off of Central Campus.  Consult both maps to find the nearest visitor parking options.
