If you drive:

	Ann Arbor is 45 miles west of Detroit on I-94 at the junction 
	of U.S. 23.  To reach the Chrysler Center take U.S. 23 North
	to the Plymouth Road exit (note: not the exit to Plymouth), 
	take Plymouth Road west to Murfin Avenue.  The Chrysler Center 
	is located near the intersection of Murfin Avenue and Bonisteel

	For those who have reserved a parking permit, park in the
	staff areas of the parking lots, rather than in a metered

Directions to Chrysler Center From Detroit Metro Airport
 1.  On exiting airport, follow I-94 West (marked Ann Arbor or Chicago).
 2.  Go west about 18 miles to US-23.  Exit to US-23 north.  Follow US-23
     north about 4 miles to Geddes Road  (Exit number 39) and exit.
 3.  Turn left on Geddes and follow along about two miles.  You will pass 
     two traffic lights, and after the second light, Geddes Road changed into 
     Fuller Road.  You will be forced to make an abrupt right-hand turn onto 
     a one-way street (the street is named Oakway Road, and the Veteran's 
     Hospital will be on your left).  Stay in the right lane and go "straight" 
     at the stop sign at the end  of the block.  You are entering the UM North 
     Campus on Beal Avenue at this point.
 4.  Follow Beal Avenue north (about 1/4 of a mile) until you come to a 
     stop sign, you are now at Bonisteel Avenue, turn left here.  There 
     is a parking lot on the right, about 1/2 way down Bonisteel that you 
     may use.  If this lot is full go to the next street,  which is Murfin 
     and turn right.  After you turn right,  make a right into the North 
     Campus Commons parking lot.

 4.  Turn into the first parking lot entrance on the left (you'll notice 
     the Gerald Ford Library on your right).
 5.  The Computing Center Building is at the end of the first aisle--the 
     three-story, dark glass building on the end.  Enter on the north 
     (far) side.  Take the elevator to the 3rd floor.  Once you reach 
     the third floor, you may need to use the phone right outside the 
     entrance; dial 3-3448 and someone will let you in to the NOC area.

Directions from Metro Airport to Central Campus

Once you get to Plymouth Road (off of US-23) continue on Plymouth Road 
west until you get to Main St (this is a long haul).  Turn left on Main St. 
(South).  Take Main Street to E. Huron Street.  Turn left on Huron (East).
Then follow the postscript map on Huron to the League or to the Campus Inn.  
Oxford Housing is located within the Michigan League building.  

Note: these directions follow the most straight forward and heavily used
roads.  Once you know the area or get a real map you will be able to 
shorten the ride.

 2.  At the stop sign, turn right onto Glazier Way and get into the left 
     lane (it's a one-way street).

     Road (you are circling the Veteran's Hospital).  Get into the right
