Parking at the VA

The VA police have been in contact with the VA Education Office.

The Education Office has received multiple calls from VA Police regarding House Officers parking in the Emergency Room parking area. According to Dr. Craig Jaffe, Associate Chief  of Staff, Education, "this is not allowed.  House Officers will be ticketed, there is no discussion. The fine is nontrivial."

Programs in which trainees have weekend/night duties have been provided with shared parking passes for parking in the West Parking Structure during off hours (weekdays ~2 pm – 7 am and all day on weekends; gate will be up). Parking in this structure without a pass can also result in a ticket. Trainees should never park in the Patient Parking Structure, even if gate is up. 

There is also parking for UM residents in the Blue Parking lot across from the VA on Fuller.
