Parking at the new Mike Ilitch School of Business

Wayne State University's Facilities Planning and Management, Parking and Transportation Services, 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.

The detailed location and rate charts linked above reflect the ability to purchase daily parking through Olympia via credit card, or to continue purchasing parking through Wayne State's OneCard/Parking Service Center via daily OneCard debit purchases or online semester pass sales. Using any of the WSU options will allow individuals to park for class during downtown events without paying the higher daily rates noted during events.

Mike Ilitch School of Business semester and daily parking at Olympia's Temple West and "D" garages begins Aug. 27.

For those who prefer to park in Midtown, Parking Structure 1 (Palmer and Cass) is our designated Mike Ilitch School of Business park-and-ride point, with express shuttle service to and from the Ilitch School building in the District Detroit. Shuttles will operate Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 11 p.m., with the last pickup from the Ilitch School at 10:45 p.m. Friday hours will be 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., with the last pick up from the Ilitch School at 5:45 p.m. Shuttles will run approximately every 20 minutes throughout the day and approximately every 10 minutes during peak hours. These shuttles will be added to the WSU app's shuttle-tracking section for real-time viewing capabilities. Shuttle service will be monitored and adjustments to schedules may be made for efficiency and effectiveness based on ridership.  

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:
