University Career Center Map

Employers check-in for in-person interviews at the University Career Center located at: 
3200 Student Activities Bldg., 515 E. Jefferson Street, Ann Arbor, Michigan 48109-1316 

See the details below for nearby parking.

As on many large campuses, parking is challenging and extremely limited. Construction on campus and increased demand for faculty/staff parking has led the Parking Services office to limit visitor parking. Therefore, the University Career Center is not able to sell visitor permits or provide parking validation. Whenever possible, we strongly suggest the use of airport shuttle, taxi, or ride share services to avoid the challenges of parking. The following suggestions are provided to make your visit to the University of Michigan as easy and pleasant as possible.

Arrive early 
Plan to arrive early leaving yourself time to park and settle in before your first interview.

Hotel facilities 
If you are staying at one of the hotels near campus (see list below), you may want to leave your car at the hotel and walk to the University Career Center as on-campus parking is limited.

U-M Visitor Lot  
The visitor parking lot just north of the Student Activities Building may be accessed from Thompson Street. There are limited numbered spaces and a central pay machine. The fee is $2.00 per hour between the hours of 6:00 am–6:00 pm, Monday through Saturday.

Maynard Street Public Parking Garage 
This city-run parking structure offers a nearby alternative. Less than two blocks from the University Career Center, this is a gated lot with payment due at departure. The rate is $1.20 per hour, 24 hours a day, Monday through Saturday. 

Taxi  and Rideshare Service 
Local taxi services are also an alternative to locating on-campus parking. Check with your hotel for information on taxi service to the Michigan Union area. Please allow up to 30 minutes for pick up. Both Lyft and Uber operate in the Ann Arbor area.

Airport Shuttles 
Shuttles are available for transportation to and from Detroit Metropolitan Airport.
