Parking

GVSU is a permit-only campus.

Visitor Parking: Guests/visitors sponsored by SIH administrators or programs/faculty within the School, may request a visitor parking permit by contacting the SIH office or the sponsoring program. This permit allows parking in signed spaces at RFH, as well as the upper level parking ramp at CHS and DCIH. Visitor passes cannot be issued to current GVSU personnel or students. Visitors also have the option to utilize the pay-to-park area in the shared GVSU / Spectrum Shared Parking Ramp (we recommend using ParkMobile). 

Student Parking on the Health Campus is available, with valid student permit, at the new GVSU / Spectrum Parking Ramp. The ramp is located behind the new Daniel & Pamella DeVos Center for Interprofessional Health (DCIH), at 333 Michigan Street NE. There are two entrance: Prospect St. and Lafayette St. Click on the parking icon above for more parking information details. Please refrain from parking on the neighborhood streets.

Taking the Bus

GVSU students ride the bus for FREE!

The new Laker Line BRT (LL) connects GVSU's Allendale, Pew, and Health campuses.

The Health Campus bus stop is located in front of the DeVos Center for Interprofessional Health (DCIH) and adjacent to CHS.
