Getting to the Big House
Not surprisingly, permit parking fills the lots closest to Michigan Stadium such as the ones outside Crisler Arena, while day of game public parking is available at the U of M Golf Course, the tennis center, driving range and several other spots. Driving directions and parking info, including a helpful map, can be found here
If you’ve parked in a remote lot or are already on campus, your best bet is to just start walking. And finding your way to the game is easy enough … simply walk outside and follow the procession of tens of thousands of maize and blue-clad fans streaming toward the stadium.
This walk might be the most fascinating part of the game day experience, as you’ll see thousands of college students gearing up for the game with beer bongs, beer pong and other drinking games at nearly every off-campus house or fraternity along the way.
On Hoover Street you’ll probably see the Bongo Man, who plays bongos and makes up funny songs about anyone willing to throw some spare change into his bucket. A little farther down Hoover are the facilities for the marching band, and if you’re passing by early enough you’ll get to hear and see a performance by the drum corps. From there, it’s just about a five-minute stroll before you’re standing in the line of eager fans waiting to get into the Big House.
The Ann Arbor Transit Authority runs shuttle service to the stadium from local hotels as well as outlying parking lots and garages, the Michigan Union and downtown Ann Arbor. For more information call 734-973-6500 or visit here.
