There are a few options you have for parking:
Free Parking - you can park at lot MC28 for free on the weekends. This lot is across the street from Mary Markley Hall, 1503 Washington Heights, Ann Arbor, MI 48109. The venue is at most a 10 minute walk away from this lot. Another free lot is at the intersection of Ann and Zina Pitcher. City parking is free on Sundays.

Hotels

There are two hotels that you can reserve on campus, the Bell Tower Inn and the Campus Inn. These two hotels are generally expensive, however, and you can find much better deals if you stay off-campus. To see rates and locations, click here.

Air Travel

If you are planning on flying, fly into DTW. There is a very reasonable shuttle service from DTW to Ann Arbor, check out rates and times at AirRide's website. Roundtrip is $22 for adults, and any accompanying children 17 and under ride for free. This service drops you off at the Central Campus Transit Center, which is within walking distance of the venue.

Refunds

If you withdraw your registration before registration closes (Wednesday, April 10, 2019, 11:59 PM EDT), you are eligible for a refund of half your registration cost. This means that if you decide to withdraw before then, you are eligible for a refund of $5. After this date, no refund requests will be honored.

There will be no refunds issued after this date. Attempting to file a chargeback for the registration fee will lead to being blacklisted from future WCA events.
