All University parking lots and structures require a parking pass or are metered. Enforcement hours vary by lot.
Visitors to CSE (which is housed in the Bob and Betty Beyster Building) will find most convenient parking in lot NC48 or NC27, as shown on this North Campus Parking Map (pdf). Visitor parking is marked in red on the map. Visitors park in numbered spaces and pay at pay booths in the lot.
Additional information is available from U-M Parking and Transportation Services.
Ann Arbor is a highly walkable and bikeable city. However, it can be best to take a U-M bus when traveling between North and Central campuses or, if driving yourself, to take advantage of visitor parking spaces. U-M buses run frequently and can be ridden at no cost.
