From Central Campus:

CRLT is on the 1st floor of Palmer Commons. From central campus, there are two ways to access this building. (For information about wheelchair accessibility, see below.):

  1. From the Corner of Washington St. and Fletcher St.: Head east between the Power Center and Fletcher Parking structure. When this pathway opens up into a small plaza area, Palmer Commons will be on the left.
  2. Near the Central Campus Transit Center on N. University Ave.: Head northeast between the Dental School and the new Biological Sciences building. When this pathway open up into a small plaza area, Palmer Commons will be in front of you.

Both of these pathways lead you to a 3rd Floor entrance You will then need to:

  1. Take the elevator to the 1st Floor.
  2. Turn left out of the elevator and go through the double doors on the left.

CRLT’s Main Entrance is on the right (Room 1071). The Seminar Room is down the long hall and on the right (Room 1013). The Consultation Room is to your immediate left and then around the corner to the right, near the loading dock (Room 1154).

Wheelchair Accessibility to the 3rd Floor: The 3rd floor entrance described above is wheelchair accessible; however, the door leading to the elevators to the left of that entrance is not. There is another elevator further north in the building that is wheelchair-accessible. There are two ways to get to CRLT using that elevator:

  1. After entering the building on the 3rd floor as described above, go straight ahead through the accessible entrance into the café area. Proceed through that area, past the café seating, to the Palmer Commons information desk, where you will find the elevator to the left. Take it down to the 1st floor.
  2. Instead of entering the building on the 3rd floor as described in #1 above, take the outdoor path around the east side of the building and enter the first set of doors on the left (before you get to the pedestrian bridge). When you enter, the elevator will be directly in front of you. Take it down to the 1st floor.

Upon exiting the elevator, the CRLT Seminar Room (1071) will be directly in front of you. For CRLT’s Main Entrance, turn right out of the elevator and go down the hall, turn left when the hall ends, go around the corner, and continue down the hall until you reach Room 1071.

1st Floor Entrance via Washtenaw Avenue: There is also a pedestrian pathway on the west side of Washtenaw Ave. that allows you to enter the 1st floor of Palmer Commons (at the intersection of Palmer Dr. and Washtenaw Ave.). After entering the building, proceed straight through the double doors and follow the directions described above to reach the CRLT room you need. This entrance is wheelchair accessible. PLEASE NOTE: The sidewalk along Washtenaw Avenue is currently under construction.

Accessible Restrooms: Wheelchair-accessible restrooms are available across from the CRLT Seminar Room. There is also a gender-inclusive restroom on the 3rd floor in the cafe area near the TV screen.

Park in the Palmer Structure which lies beneath the Life Sciences Institute and the Undergrad Science Building. (i.e., the parking structure is across the street from the Palmer Commons Building, not directly connected to it.) After turning onto Palmer Drive from Washtenaw Ave, look for entrances to parking on the left. The first entrance is a gated lot (N26) for U-M faculty and staff with Blue or Gold parking permits. Visitor parking (N16) is accessed via the second entrance at the far end of Palmer Drive, also on the left.

If exiting the parking structure at the ground level, cross the street (Palmer Drive) and enter the Palmer Commons Building on the ground floor (near the intersection of Plamer Drive and Washtenaw Ave). Or, if you use one of the elevators within the parking structure, look for an exit to the Plaza level and follow signs to the Palmer Commons Building. The entrance from the Plaza level is on the 3rd floor of the Palmer Commons Building; take an elevator or stairs to reach CRLT on the ground floor.
