Parking in Ann Arbor and on campus is often limited. However, there are many structures and some street parking around campus.
In general, you can expect to pay $1.90/hr for metered parking and $1.20/hr for parking in a structure. If parking in a metered space "on campus," expect to pay $2/hr.
A list of rates for every structure is available on the Downtown Development Authority website. For a list of rates for on-campus structures, check out the Visitor Parking link on the Parking & Transportation Services website.
On Central Campus and around downtown Ann Arbor, free parking is available during these times:
All Federal Holidays
Monday-Saturday: after 6:00pm
Sunday: All Day
Violations are issued if a car is parked illegally or if time has expired on a meter. All violations and payment options are handled by the city of Ann Arbor.
A word to the wise - make sure you don't get a violation because they become costly! If you're on campus, the fine for parking at an expired meter is $40, or $30 if paid the next business day. The fine for parking with no permit in a University lot is $75, or $65 if paid the next day. The price of a parking ticket in the city is $25, or $15 if paid the next day.
