Summer/Fall 2016
There is some road construction
on routes approaching the U.

Do not use your GPS. It may not be accurate because of light rail and ongoing construction on campus. Use the directions below.



From I-94:


1. Take the Huron exit off of I-94.

2. Turn left on SE Fulton St. (It's the first stop-light.)

3. Drive on Fulton for about a half of a mile. Fulton merges onto East River Road.

4. Drive about one-third of a mile until you reach the East River Parking Garage.

5. Turn right to park in the East River Parking Garage. (It's a big garage and rarely runs out of space. There is only one elevator bank. If you park near the elevators, it will be easier to find your car later!)

6. Take the parking garage elevator to the plaza level (Level "1") and walk east to Coffman Memorial Union (CMU). In inclement weather, take the elevator to "Level A" and follow the signs to the “Gopher Way” tunnel to Coffman. You'll emerge in the basement of Coffman. Take the stairs, then the escalator up to the ground floor.

7. Take the Coffman elevators to the 4th floor. Elevators are on either side of the Bookstore, opposite the restrooms.


From University Avenue heading east:

1. Turn right on Oak Street. Drive about one-third of a mile.

2. Turn right on SE Fulton St. Fulton merges onto East River Road. Drive another one-third of a mile until you reach the East River Parking Garage.

3. Turn right to park in the East River Parking Garage. (It's a big garage and rarely runs out of space. There is only one elevator bank. If you park near the elevators, it will be easier to find your car later!)


4. Take the parking garage elevator to the plaza level (Level "1") and walk east to Coffman Memorial Union (CMU). In inclement weather, take the elevator to "Level A" and follow the signs to the “Gopher Way” tunnel to Coffman. You'll emerge in the basement of Coffman. Take the stairs, then the escalator up to the ground floor.

From downtown or the West Bank:

1. Take 4th street east to Washington Ave SE.


2. Take the Washington Avenue Bridge across the river. Turn right on Delaware (that's your only option). Stay on Delaware.

3. After you pass the Weisman Art Museum, the entrance to the East River Parking Garage is straight ahead.


4. Enter the East River Parking Garage.
(It's a big garage and rarely runs out of space. There is only one elevator bank. If you park near the elevators, it will be easier to find your car later!)

Dropping someone off at Coffman:

If you are coming from the south on East River Road, turn right on Delaware.

If you are coming from the north on East River Road, turn left on Delaware.

If you are coming from the east on Washington, you will be routed to Delaware.

Follow Delaware to the south entrance of Coffman. There are several drop-off locations, including several handicap ramps. The quickest handicap access is next to the West Loading Dock.

There is an entrance to the East River Parking Garage on Delaware opposite the West Loading Dock.



Using the Coffman Union East Loading Dock:

Coffman has an East and a West Loading Dock. Use the EAST one. We have a Loading Zone parking pass (good for a half-hour) that you can borrow. Park in an authorized Loading Zone 30-minute parking space. DO NOT PARK ALONG THE YELLOW PAINTED CURB. Please return our Loading Zone pass when you are done.

On weekends, if you need to borrow a cart or the Campus Club Loading Zone pass, come up to the Campus Club front desk and get it from the manager on duty.

On weekdays, you can arrange with the Events Office for someone to meet you at the loading dock with the parking pass.


To get to the East Loading Dock:

1. Follow appropriate directions above but instead of entering the parking garage, turn (or stay) on Delaware Street. Stay on Delaware. This will bring you behind Coffman Union.

2. Take first left (just east of the building) into the EAST loading dock, there you can unload.

3. Go down the hallway (stay to the left) a little way. Follow signs to the elevators. Take elevators to fourth floor.
