Please feel free to download our Printable Directions or Printable Brochure showing our location.

Our building is very easy to find once you know where it is, but it is confusing to explain it. Please look at the maps and the pictures we are providing.

It is set back from the road and is surrounded by ample surface parking. Some of the streets are one-way, so it is easiest to enter the parking lot located to our north at the corner of Saginaw and Fifth Avenue (Robert T. Longway). If you require handicapped parking, you may wind your way down to the building by driving down through the parking lot or you may enter more directly by coming north on Harrison Street and entering our property before it winds its way back into University Avenue. The biggest landmarks are St. Michael's Church and Rally's at the corner of N. Saginaw and Fifth Avenue on our north side and Harrison-University Avenues on our west. Seen as depicted in the above image:

 

 

Parking:

Parking for UHWC patients is available as follows:

Please feel free to download our Printable Directions or Printable Brochure showing our location. There is limited metered parking in Lot P (see the map on the right and below). There is also Visitor and UHWC patient parking in Lot P, directly in front of UHWC at the North end of the William S. White Building (see the yellow bubble location on the map at the right and below).

Remember:

Parking laws at the UHWC are enforced! Parking in the wrong spots or expired ones will get you a ticket. If you do not want a ticket, you can park in a UHWC marked space, get a State Handicapped Permit to park in a handicapped space, or pay to park at a regular meter (Don't let it expire!). Any fines received must be paid to the 68th District Court (Fines are: $25 for expired meters or $154 for handicapped parking without a State of Michigan permit or handicapped license plate.)

  •  If the parking space asks for coins, give it!

  •  Park anywhere that is indicated as UHWC parking, and make sure you have a permit if it is marked as handicapped parking!

  •  All other parking spots are used for other departments and using them will result in a parking ticket!

 

Disability Permit Parking:

Requires a state-issued disability permit. To obtain a disability placard or license plate, see the Michigan's Secretary of State.
