Street parking is free in Ann Arbor on Sundays. The University of Michigan-owned Hill Parking Structure (adjacent to Ross and highlighted in blue on the map above), is free on Sundays and after 5 PM on other days of the week. However, at other times only University of Michigan employees may access this structure. A couple blocks east is the Forest Parking Structure (a further walk and highlighted in green on the map above). It is also free on Sundays, but will charge on other days. However, it is always open to the public and University of Michigan affiliation is not required.
