Michigan Stadium History and Overview

Michigan Stadium, home to the Wolverines, is located in Ann Arbor, Michigan. “The Big House” began construction in September 1926 and was completed on October 1, 1927. After eight decades worth of expansions and renovations, the stadium went from originally holding 72,000 fans to now upwards of 107,000. The Big House is now the largest stadium in the United States and 2nd largest in the world. The record attendance was set in a game against rival Notre Dame on September 7, 2013 with 115,109 fans.

Michigan Stadium Section Breakdown

All sections at The Big House follow a standard 1-44 sequence. The only exception is in the club and suite level seating above the east and west sidelines.

The vast majority of seats at the stadium are bleacher seating, meaning no chair backs. If you’re not thrilled with sitting on bare bleacher seats, be sure to bring a seat cushion. The only sections that do have chair backs are in the club and suite level sections.  More on that below.

Michigan Wolverines Student Section

The Michigan Stadium Student Section is located in sections 25-33R, and they are without question the most rowdy seats inside The Big House. Don’t expect to sit in these seats, and if you are bringing children to the game, you want to steer clear of these sections at all costs.
Student tickets sell out quickly since only about 15,000 are allotted to the student body. More importantly, you won’t be able to purchase student section tickets on the secondary market as only currently enrolled Michigan students are eligible for these seats. Student tickets are also only transferable to other UM students.

Michigan Stadium Club Seats

The club level at Michigan Stadium is located above the east sideline (where the visitors bench is located). Holding over 3,000 seats spread across two levels, the club level features chair backs, access to an indoor climate controlled lounge, premium concessions, and private bathrooms.. These sections are very small, with only 5-8 rows per section.

The west side of the stadium now features the Westside Chair Back Club. This newly developed club is located in the footprint of the old press box. If you’re looking for an actual seat with a chair back, but don’t want to break the bank, then the Westside Chair Back Club is perfect for you. These are the most affordable premium seats in the stadium.

Michigan Stadium Suite Level Seats

The suite level at Michigan Stadium is located on both the east and west sidelines. These private boxes not only provide exceptional views, but also one of the most unique game day experiences. Featuring only 12 seats and four barstools, these fully furnished suites are small, so beware. With private parking and premium catering options to boot, the suites are the most expensive seating options in The Big House.

Visiting Team Fan Sections

Although there is no designated visitor sections, most opposing team fans are subjected to sit in the upper tier of the South Endzone between sections 9-15.

If you are fan of the visiting team and want to ensure you sit with your fellow fans, the upper tier of the South Endzone is where you want to be. If you are a Wolverines fan, make sure you avoid these areas!

Parking and Tailgating

This is a detailed map of the designated parking areas near The Big House.

There are a number of parking options around Michigan Stadium on football game days. Many lots are permit-only, but there are also numerous options for guests looking for day of game/cash sale parking. Please go to the Football Parking Inventory page for a list of options and prices.

An affordable alternative to parking on campus or near the stadium is FootballRide. FootballRide is a shuttle service offered only on football Saturdays. Tickets are $1.50 each and buses run every 20 minutes, beginning two hours before games and for one hour after the game ends.

Tips for Tailgating:

  • Arrive early so you have your pick of parking spot.
  • The most well-known places to tailgate are at the Pioneer High School lot, the U-M Golf Course, and AA Golf & Outing.
  • Fan tailgating is allowed in the lots surrounding the stadium starting between 6am-7am.
  • Cell service can get spotty, so it’s advised to mark your tailgate with a large (unique) flag so friends and family can find you. However, fans may not display flags, balloons, signs or the like more than 20 feet above the parking lot surface.
  • Leave any bags behind, including purses, coolers, camera cases, and binocular cases. These are not allowed in the Big House.
  • There is no alcohol served in The Big House so plan accordingly.
  • Don’t be in a rush to leave after the game, you are better off finishing your leftovers at your tailgate and waiting for traffic to die down.

Best Seats at The Big House

As cliche as it is, there really isn’t a bad seat at The Big House. You can feel the energy of the crowd from all corners of the stadium. But, like any football stadium, the best viewing will come in the sections between the 30 yard lines.

The best seats are located in the sections closest to midfield such as sections 22-24, 1-2, and 44. Because these sections have so many rows, you ideally want to sit between rows 10-30, so you can watch the plays develop.

If you are going to a Wolverines game to drink and have a rowdy time, the aforementioned student sections are the place for you. There is a contagious energy that spreads from the students to every surrounding section. It makes for a unique game day experience.

Handicapped & ADA Seating at Michigan Stadium

For those who are confined to a wheelchair and/or those looking to attend a game at Michigan Stadium with somebody who is, there is some important information that you’ll want to know. If you’re seeking ADA or handicapped seating, you’ll find that there are accessible rows at the top of most sections within the ballpark and spread throughout. If necessary, folding chairs will be provided with guests, such as ones looking to sit with a fan confined to a wheelchair. One trick you can use to filter tickets that are handicapped or ADA accessible is by using our “Additional filters +” button on the event page that allow you to select “ADA (wheelchair accessible),” which shows all seats that the seller has marked as handicapped seating.
