Diversity and Belonging: Unsung Keyboard Stories – Conference Travels
General Transportation Information:
Travel to Campus
Parking is very limited on the University of Michigan campus. As much as possible, we recommend using the hotel shuttles and bus system to get around in Ann Arbor. If you do choose to drive and park, do not park in any Blue, Orange, or Yellow lot during ticketing hours or you will likely receive a hefty fine. For driving directions to campus, use Google Maps or the link here.
Travel Between Locations on Campus
The University of Michigan is known for having a geographically large campus, so we have labelled and refer often to specific regions of the campus--Central, North, etc. When traveling within a region, walking is often possible. When traveling between regions, you can use the free campus bus system. The conference activities include venues in both Central and North campus, so we have included the relevant bus maps below for travel between those regions.

To BAM (Blanche Anderson Moore):
- Walk straight through the atrium then turn left, and Britton will be immediately there.
- Walk straight through the atrium then turn right. Go down the stairs on the right, then continue walking straight down the hallway to the next flight of stairs. Go down the stairs and walk through the hallway. At the end of the hallway, BAM will be to the right.
- Accessibility option: Walk straight through the atrium to the elevator. Go down to L2. When you exit the elevator, BAM will be on the left.

The University also has several visitor parking lots
with limited availability.
Google Maps also has fairly reliable campus bus information, though the best information (especially if there are delays) can be found through the MBus Tracker App.
