What's New at Michigan Stadium for 2013
ACCESSIBLE PARKING GAMEDAY CASH SALES
A limited number of (cash only) single-game parking passes for persons needing accessible parking will be available in the Green Lot on game day on a first-come, first-serve basis. All parking for persons with disabilities requires a State-Issued Disability Parking Placard.
CONSTRUCTION IN THE GREY LOT
Several construction projects taking place during the Fall of 2013 will have an impact on parking and pedestrian traffic in and around the Grey Lot. Vehicles will now have just two points of entry and exit into the Grey Lot -- one on State Street (north of Yost Ice Arena) and the other on Hoover Street (near Revelli Hall). A pedestrian path will be maintained along the railroad tracks west of the Indoor Track Building, Oosterbaan Fieldhouse and the Football Practice Fields. Pedestrians should be aware that a section of sidewalk on the west side of State Street (near Schembechler Hall) will be unusable and should plan their route to Michigan Stadium accordingly. Those traveling on State Street near the Stadium Boulevard overpass should access the sidewalk along the Stadium Boulevard bridge by using the stairs or accessible ramp at Rose Avenue to head west towards Michigan Stadium.
The Public Will Call ticket window is now located inside the Northeast Entry of Crisler Center off the Blue Lot and will open two-and-one-half hours before kickoff. Also accessible from this entry point are public restrooms and the M Den Store located on the concourse level of Crisler Center.
GATE 10 - STUDENTS ONLY
The student section at Michigan Stadium is now General Admission, and specific information regarding the entry and seating process for students can be found at MGoBlue.com/tickets/students-index.html. In order to facilitate and ensure a smooth entry for both students as well as the general public, Gate 10 will be a STUDENT SECTION ONLY entrance in 2013. Only those with student tickets, including those with validated student tickets, will be allowed entry through Gate 10. All others will be directed to Gate 9 (just west of Gate 10 at the north end of the stadium) or Gate 1 (just north of the football tunnel on the east side of the stadium).
KEECH STREET CLOSURE
Keech Street will now be closed beginning four (4) hours prior to kickoff due to anticipated pedestrian congestion associated with the new student entry process at Gate 10.
REMOTE GUEST SERVICES LOCATIONS
Guest Services Team Members will be available in select parking lots to answer questions, address concerns and listen to suggestions on game days. Official souvenir programs will also be available for purchase at these remote Guest Services kiosks, which can be found in the Blue, Green and Grey Lots from four (4) hours prior to kickoff until one (1) hour prior to kickoff.
