Parking at the Mike Ilitch School of Business

Wayne State University Parking and Transportation Administration and the Mike Ilitch School of Business have worked diligently with Olympia Development to provide parking options at both Olympia Development's facilities and WSU-owned facilities. A variety of parking options are available to students, faculty and staff coming to the new Ilitch School building, located at 2771 Woodward Avenue in the District Detroit.

Parking at the Ilitch School

The closest secured parking is the Temple West Garage located at 123 Temple St. Secondary parking is available at the D Garage located at 90 E. Fisher Service Dr. Both of these locations are owned and operated by Olympia Development of Michigan. The daily credit card rate is $8*. WSU faculty, staff and students can also pay via OneCard at a fixed rate of $9.

*Please note that Olympia garages utilize dynamic pricing. Cash/credit rates on event days typically go into effect at 3 p.m. and can go as high as $45.

Parking on Main Campus

For those who prefer to park on WSU's main campus in Midtown, WSU Parking Structure 1 (Palmer and Cass) is our designated Mike Ilitch School of Business park-and-ride point with free express shuttle service to and from the new Ilitch School building. Shuttles typically operate Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 11 p.m., with the last pickup form the Ilitch School at 10:45 p.m. Friday hours are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., with the last pick up from the Ilitch School at 5:45 p.m. Seasonal hours of operation may apply.

In addition, the main campus shuttle will now run in approximately 30-minute intervals and include Parking Structure 7 (Woodward and Mack) and the Ilitch School as part of the main campus route. Using the QLine streetcar system, Detroit Department of Transportation buses and bicycling — both personal or MoGo's bike share — are other convenient options. Lots 12 and 14 are two low-cost parking options on the north end of campus. See online map for parking locations:
