Where is the Ombuds Office?

The Ombuds Office is located in Room 37 of Physics Hall, (not far from Parks Library). The closest metered parking lot is about a ten-minute walk, at the Armory. There are also a few 30-minute parking meters on Stange Road, next to Kildee Hall. There are Cy-Ride bus stops right outside Physics Hall.
