The Parking Enforcement Unit provides high quality enforcement of all parking regulations and ordinances enacted by the Regents of the University. The two primary goals are to ensure public safety and to manage the U-M's limited parking resources.
Parking Enforcement Officers enhance safety by patrolling parking lots and structure every day. They provide information to the public, report illegal activity, give warnings where warranted and write citations when necessary. Their continuous patrols help keep traffic lanes clear, driveways open and emergency accesses available for medical, fire and police response units.
Parking Enforcement Officers assist in managing the University's scarce parking resources by monitoring permit-only lots, meters and other timed parking areas and providing the public with information regarding parking alternatives. This active management does increase the availability of our limited parking space and the continuous presence of the officers adds to the overall safety of the University.
