Dedicated parking is provided for University Service Vehicles, and a permit is required. To qualify, vehicle use must meet the following definition:

“A service vehicle is any licensed University vehicle, typically a truck or van, whose primary purpose supports maintenance and repair work for University buildings and grounds, OR for daily delivery of commodities, materials, equipment, and tools. Only vehicles with such primary purposes are permitted to use U-M Service Vehicle spaces. Sedans and other types of vehicles used primarily for the transportation of passengers will be known as U-M Business Vehicles and are expressly excluded from the service vehicle definition.”

Parking in designated U-M Service Vehicle, U-M Business, Commercial Vehicle (time limits must be observed), Blue, Yellow, and Orange spaces. U-M Service Vehicle spaces are enforced 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, unless otherwise noted. If you need access to gated structure parking for your University-issued service vehicle, please contact Logistics, Transportation & Parking at (734) 936-2208 to obtain a device.

Note: if you drive a U-M Service vehicle, we ask that you use the dedicated spaces first whenever possible to keep non-dedicated spaces available for others.

  • Adhere to the time restrictions established.
