Uncertainty about where students of the Mike Ilitch School of Business will park their cars has been resolved.

Parking options will be available at Olympia Development spaces and at Wayne State owned lots, WSU announced in a press release Friday.

Semester parking at Olympia Development facilities, which are owned by the Ilitch family, ranges from $540 to $700 per semester. WSU parking options on the main campus will be $356 or $444.50 per semester. The cheapest parking options are lots 12 and 14 located at WSU on the north end of campus.

Olympia Development parking lots are more expensive but closer to the new school of business.

“There are also less-expensive options and we encourage you to explore them,” the press release stated.

Steve Townsend, director of marketing and communications for the Mike Ilitch School of Business, could not be reached for comment.

There will be a free shuttle that takes students to the business school from all WSU parking lots.

Shuttles will operate Monday through Thursday from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m., with the last pick up from the business school at 10:45 p.m. The shuttle will run Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., with the last pick up from the business school at 5:45 pm. Shuttles will run every 20 minutes during the day and every 10 minutes during peak hours.

Olympia’s Temple West and “D” garages are expected to open prior to the fall semester.

Semester parking for Olympia facilities will go on sale Aug. 6. On-campus parking passes are currently on sale and can be purchased at
