Detroit Center Visitor Parking

GVSU has not yet secured parking downtown Detroit, however, you may park in the lot adjacent to the Detroit Center with an entrance on Witherell Street. The cost to park in the lot varies depending on the time of day and if any city events are occurring (sporting events, concerts, opera, etc.). If there are no downtown events scheduled, the lot costs $5 before 3 p.m. and a minimum of $6 after 3 p.m. This is a cash only lot.  There are also many other lots and street parking available.
