ADA Accessible Parking

Accessible parking is available in all paid parking areas. A state issued disability placard/license plate must be displayed. Payment of the prevailing hourly parking fee is expected, unless the individual's state issued disability placard has a special "Free Parking" decal, which is issued by the State of Michigan.

Surface Lot Parking

Visitors without a parking permit may park in any of the metered areas or any gated paid parking areas by paying the posted fee.


Overnight parking is available in any gated paid surface lot for the hourly rate. A reduced-price validation can be purchased for $5 (cash) at the ParkEMU office before 5 p.m. or at the Department of Public Safety office at 5 p.m. or later for the night it will be used.  This reduced-price validation can only be used between the hours of 5 p.m. and 9 a.m. Guests may park in the paid parking lots outside of these hours to avoid the risk of receiving a citation.
