Lansing Campus Parking Policy

1.0 Overview

This document contains parking procedures for the Davenport University Lansing campus.  These procedures are in place to address local operating needs unique to the Lansing campus that may no apply to any other Davenport University location.  This document exists in addition to, not in place of, the Davenport University Parking and Registration Enforcement Policy.  Vehicles operating at the Lansing campus are subject to the provisions of both policies. 

2.0 Academic Classes and University Business

Davenport University Lansing campus makes an effort to provide convenient parking for our students and employees, but all resources are on a first-come, first-served basis.  To conserve our parking resources, we require that anyone using those resources be doing so only while they are actually on campus.  Utilizing Davenport University parking for working elsewhere or for other off-campus activities is strictly prohibited.  Exceptions to this policy must be approved by the Director of Public Safety or their designee. 

3.0 Student Parking

Registered students have two available parking options provided at the Lansing campus.  Lot 1 is approved for students and is located on the East and South sides of the classroom building.  Parking in the private lot South of Lot 1 is strictly prohibited.  This private parking lot is marked by a metal arch over the entrance.  Lot 1 also provides four (4) visitor parking spaces for those with admissions appointments.  Misuse of the visitor parking spaces is strictly enforced due to limited availability.  The South Grand Parking Ramp, located across the street from the classroom building, is approved for registered students.  A ramp access card is required to avoid paying the daily fee at the ramp.  Ramp cards can be obtained from the Lansing Campus Public Safety Office in Room 112 along with your student parking permit.  Student accounts will be charged a $40.00 refundable deposit for the access card.  The deposit will be credited back to the student's account when the student returns the ramp card to Public Safety.  The ramp cards must be returned when once the student is no longer enrolled in classes.  Note that some very large or tall vehicles may not be able to enter the South Grand Parking Ramp.  

4.0 Employee Parking

Staff and instructors with the proper access card may park in Lot 2.  Lot 2 is on the NW corner of Grand Avenue and Washtenaw Street, with entry via an electronic gate off of Grand Ave.  Employees are prohibited from parking in Lot 1 at any time.  Visiting staff that arrives at the Lansing campus for meetings or events may park in Lot 2 on a first-come, first-served basis.  If Lot 2 is at capacity, staff will need to secure parking in a private lot or on the street and file for reimbursement from their respective department.

5.0 External Groups and Events

External groups will need tp secure parking options off campus during events.  They will not be permitted to use the on campus lots without prior written approval from the Director of Public Safety or their designee. 

6.0 Modifications

Davenport University reserves the right to modify this policy at any time, with or without notice.  Revisions will be made at the discretion of the Director of Public Safety.
