Faculty and Staff - Gold Parking

Gold Parking sign

The Gold parking program was established to address the needs of physicians who provide patient care and who require timely access to hospitals and clinics. All physicians who see patients are Gold eligible. Executive officers and deans are also eligible.

Gold parking is located in all structures and a few lots on Central, North, Medical and Ross Athletic campuses. Spaces are either signed or controlled by gates. Gold permits are also valid in Blue, Yellow and Orange lots or structures.

Exception: The Gold permit is not valid and will not be honored at the Coliseum lot (SC9) or in any lots located south of Hill Street on home football game Saturdays, nor will they be honored at any lots located on Kipke Drive during home basketball games.

Additional Access on Medical Campus: All physicians seeing patients have restricted access to P3 (Taubman South Deck) as follows: Show moreShow less
