Visitor parking is available on Central Campus at the Palmer Dr. structure and on the Medical Campus at the P1 (Cancer Center), P2 (Taubman/University Hospital), P4 (Women's & Children's Hospitals) and P5 (Cardiovascular Center) structures. Parkers pull a parking ticket upon entering a structure and pay the cashier to exit. The Palmer structure rate is $0.55 per half-hour. P1, P2, P4 and P5 structures rates are as follows: $2 for up to 4 hrs., $3 for 4-6 hrs., $5 for 6-8 hrs., $10 for 8-24 hrs. Visitors can get their parking ticket validated in several locations for a $2 discounted rate.
Visitor parking is available in a number of lots located throughout campus, with either individual meters or central pay machines (CPM). Parking fees and maximum hours of use, which vary by location, are posted on the meters or pay machines.
Central Pay Machines
Central Pay Machines (CPM) are used at twelve campus locations to control visitor parking.

All CPMs, except for the machine located at lot W5, accept coin, currency and credit cards (VISA, MasterCard, and Discover). At lot W5, only coin or credit card payment is accepted. Each space is individually numbered. Be sure to observe your space number as it must be entered into the CPM to make payment.
All CPMs will provide a payment receipt. The receipt provides the expiration time and "Add Time" number (see below).
Add Time Feature
At CPM-equipped locations (except W5), you may add time to your space by selecting the "Add Time" option after entering the space number. You will be prompted to enter the "Add Time" number located on your original payment receipt. Warning: If the "Add Time" option is not selected, additional payments will not be added to the original transaction and the ending time will not advance. Instead, it will be processed as a new transaction, canceling any prior payment or time on that space.
All CPMs (except W5) will return payments if the transaction is canceled BEFORE it is finalized (the OK button is pressed). After the OK button is pressed, refunds are not available. The CPM will return a maximum of $5 only, in coin. If the amount owed is greater than $5, a refund slip will be generated for the remaining amount. To receive the remaining refund, call the Parking & Transportation Services phone number on the refund slip for instructions. A cash refund for the remaining balance can be obtained the same day between the hours of 8 AM and 4 PM. Refunds are not given for excess payment.
