Directions to the CHM Office of Admissions
The College of Human Medicine Office of Admissions is located inside the Clinical Center at the southeast end of MSU's main campus. Our address is at 804 Service Road, Room A112, East Lansing.
Parking is available in Visitor Lot #100, located in front of the Radiology Building (846 Service Road), next door to the Clinical Center.
There are two entrances into Lot 100: one is located at the northeast corner of the lot, directly off Service Road. The other is on the west side of the lot, accessed from the drive leading to the Radiology Building. Don't forget to bring the ticket you receive when entering the lot so we can validate your parking.
Do not park in the gated Patient Lot in front of the MSU Clinical Center. This lot requires a parking token to exit and the Office of Admissions does not have tokens available.
Our office is located on the first floor, room A112.
