Parking On Campus

This information is current for summer 2017.

There are numerous construction projects on campus this summer. Most notably for 2017, Trowbridge Road, a main artery to enter campus from Hwy. 127, will be closed or partially closed during our workshop weeks. Please refer to the MSU Infrastructure Planning and Facilities website for the most current information regarding detours: http://ipf.msu.edu/construction/detours/index.html

 

Parking information for participants who will be driving daily to MSU for the CLEAR summer workshop:

 

Lot 79, south of the stadium will be closed the duration of the CLEAR program due to construction and will not be available. There are several other lot closures that will be affecting the west side of campus as well. There is pay-by-plate parking in Lots 39 (south of the International Center) and Ramp 5 (Trowbridge Road Ramp with access off the Trowbridge Road extension via Farm Lane or via Trowbridge Road based on road maintenance). After you park, you immediately pay at the lot kiosk (cash or credit card). There is also an application that allows for paying remotely for those locations. Go to http://spoton.msu.edu/ for details. The charge is $.90 for 30 minutes. There is also pay-at-exit (cash only) in Lot 62W (north of IM West) and at the Wharton Ramp (Ramp 3), directly south of Owen Hall with access off Shaw Lane which is $.90 per ½-hour or portion thereof. Or you can buy a conference parking permit directly from the MSU Parking Office ($12.00/two days-week: this is the best option for CLEAR workshop participants) allowing parking in both Ramp 3 and Ramp 5. Permits are generally issued on a consecutive-day basis. The Parking Office will determine how many permits you will need based on the dates you will be attending. You must park in Ramp 3 (visitor section) or Ramp 5 with the permit. Please let the Parking Office know you are here for a conference for CLEAR when buying your permit. The Parking Office is located at 1120 Red Cedar Road, just west of the Communication Arts and Sciences building. Automated voice directions are available by calling 517-355-8440. The MSU Parking Office is open from 7:30 AM to 4:45 PM, Monday-Friday (except University holidays or if otherwise posted).

There are also several complimentary parking lots during the summer only (unless there is a special event). They are Lots #83, #89 and #91.

Parking information for participants who will be driving to MSU and checking in at Owen Graduate Center the day before the CLEAR summer workshop is scheduled to begin:

 

Participants staying at Owen Graduate Center may use meters or park in the visitor pay lot in the Wharton Ramp across the street (access off Shaw Lane – $.90 cents per half hour or portion thereof) while moving into Owen. There is no overnight parking at meters or in the ramp. You will need to drive your car to parking lot #91. Parking lot #91 is located on the corner of Hagadorn Road and Service Road. This is a complimentary parking lot during the summer only; no parking permit is required. It is about a 20-minute walk back to Owen. There is also a bus that goes by there every day except Sunday. The route number is #23, and the cost is $1.25. You will need to get off at the CATA Transportation Center on Shaw Lane. Owen is just a short walk from the bus stop. Bus schedules can be found at: http://www.cata.org or by calling 517-394-1000.

Parking near Owen is limited to special circumstances (i.e., disability parking). There are disability spaces located near Owen; however, they may already be in use when you arrive. Contact CLEAR before arriving on campus if you feel you have a special circumstance.
