Parking at the UM-Ann Arbor Campus

We continue to align our parking policies closely with the practices in Ann Arbor, making it easier for faculty and staff who spend time on both campuses. All faculty and staff who receive a UM-Dearborn parking sticker will have access to the blue or yellow parking structures/surface lots in Ann Arbor with their UM-Dearborn MCard.  



  • Parking in Ann Arbor is allowed for university business only.
  • Current UM-Dearborn parking sticker on the front lower driver’s side window of your vehicle.
  • Current UM-Dearborn MCard. 
  • You must swipe in and out of each gated area.  Neglecting to swipe out may cause future issues.



  • Confirm you are at a blue or yellow structure/surface lot.  Note: If the lot is full, you will not be able to gain access.
  • Confirm your MCard is not expired or damaged.  Expired/Damaged MCards can be replaced at the Information Desk in the University Center (UC).  A replacement fee may apply.
  • Swipe your MCard several times.  Some readers will require several swipes to activate.


For additional questions, contact the Parking Office at 313-593-5480 or umd-parking@umich.edu.
