NCRC Parking Lot NC92 Tier Reassignment

Due to the current significant scarcity in commuter parking in the Hubbard/Hayward zone of campus, lot NC92 has temporarily been converted from Blue permit parking to predominantly Orange permit parking. Some Blue permit parking spaces will remain in lot NC92.

It is expected that this will remain in effect until Spring/Summer 2018. At that time, a currently planned project to add approximately 300 Orange permit spaces in the Hubbard/Hayward lots will be complete.

Please see map below for details.


Parking lot NC92 will reopen on Tuesday, September 5th, with temporary access from the northeast through NC93. Permanent access from the south will be complete around mid-October.

As the next work phase begins, temporary barricades will be located on the north end of parking lot NC91 beginning the last week of August, lasting through September. The current pedestrian access to Building 36 will be maintained with temporary walkways.

The walkway into the Building 28 Lobby will also be closed for approximately two weeks beginning the last week of August and a temporary route into the lobby will be in place.

Please see map below for details.


Effective Monday, July 31, Lot NC90 will be converted to ORANGE permit parking and Lot NC91 will be converted to YELLOW permit parking. This will result in a net increase of approximately 100 ORANGE permit parking spaces in Lot NC90.  

This will be an interim change. Logistics, Transportation & Parking (LTP) are scheduled to expand Lot NC53 by approximately 250 ORANGE permit parking spaces, effective January 2018. At which time, Lot NC90 will be converted to YELLOW permit parking.

NCRC Parking Lot Tier Reassignment & Renovations

NCRC and Logistics, Transportation & Parking (LTP) expect to begin the first phase of a multi-year parking lot and ring road renovation project this July, with work continuing through late fall. Pedestrian access will be maintained to the Building 28 Lobby entrance throughout the project.

  • Entire lot will be reassigned to YELLOW permit parking on July 1st
  • To offset the loss of ORANGE permit parking, the south end of lot NC53 will be reassigned to ORANGE permit parking on July 1st, making the entire lot ORANGE

Lot NC91

  • Will remain ORANGE permit parking

Lots NC92 & NC95

  • NC95 is currently closed and NC92 will be closed as of July 7th for renovations
  • When the lots reopen in the Fall of 2017, they will be reassigned to BLUE permit parking

Please see map below to reference upcoming tier changes.

The following improvements are planned (See Renovation Map):

  • Expanded parking in Lot NC92 to create 80 new parking spaces
  • New road and bus stop provided, adjacent to the south lobby entrance
  • Improved pedestrian accessibility and circulation
  • Improved ring road traffic circulation
  • Improved parking lot and sidewalk lighting
  • “Share the road” markings for bicycle traffic and additional bicycle parking

You may also want to explore your free parking options, such as the AAATA Buses and the Commuter Lots Park & Ride Program and locations. The commuter lots closest to NCRC via the North-East Shuttle are lots NC37 (Green Rd. near Baxter Rd.) and Plymouth Rd./US-23 (Southeast corner of the intersection). To coordinate, see the AAATA & U-M Bus Routes and Schedules.

Please remember that nearby shopping centers and private parking lots are often monitored by their management and any student or staff member parking a vehicle in their lots and walking to NCRC can expect to have their vehicle towed at the owner's expense.
