Follow the hall to the right for additional offices. Click for U-M Campus map.

Driving Directions

From the North:
US 23 South to M-14 West; take first exit, Exit 3, onto Main Street. Take Main Street through town. Left on Hill Street (light). Go two blocks, turn right onto Greene. Take first driveway on left into the Buhr parking lot.
From East/West:
I-94 to Exit 177, State Street exit. Go north on State Street for 3 miles. Turn left on Hoover (light), go 4 blocks, first right past railroad tracks is Greene Street. One-half block, driveway on right into the Buhr parking lot.

There are no metered spaces available in the lot in front of Buhr (marked SC-12 on the parking map). The lot SC-12 requires a University of Michigan Blue parking tag--and parking is enforced. Metered spaces are located half a block away at the corner of Hoover Street and Greene (marked VP on the map = Visitor Parking). Street parking is permitted but difficult to find. Street parking is usually available in the residential neighborhood on the other side of S. Main, about a 6-block walk. Click for U-M South Campus parking map
