Planning Your Trip

First Things First

The University of Michigan Medical School is part of a busy health care complex, so please give yourself plenty of time to find the Admissions Office where your interview day will begin.

If you're driving, be sure to use our mobile walking directions or print and bring this map to guide you from the P2 Parking Structure to the Admissions Office. It takes about 15 minutes to walk through the hospital buildings.

If you're getting dropped off or walking to the Admissions Office, we are just inside the entrance to the Medical Science Building I, which is located in a short circle drive you can access from the corner of Zina Pitcher Drive and Catherine Street. Our address is 1301 Catherine Street, Ann Arbor, MI 48109.  

For help in planning your entire visit, check out the options below that best describe you. Safe travels!

Flying to Michigan?

Detroit Metropolitan Airport (DTW) is the closest airport — about 25 miles outside of Ann Arbor — so plan on an additional 30-40 minutes travel time to get here.

When arranging drop off and pick up, use this address: 1301 Catherine St., Ann Arbor, MI 48109. The Admissions Office is located just inside the Medical Science Building I off of the Catherine Street circle drive.

A few transportation options from DTW:

Driving to Ann Arbor?

Arrive at the University Hospital (check for construction alerts) and park in "P2" (adjacent to the Taubman Center #5).

Be sure to use our mobile walking directions or print and bring this map to guide you. We will give you a parking voucher before you leave your interview.
