Great Lakes Crossing Shopping Trip

Location: Great Lakes Crossing Outlets (Auburn Hills, Michigan)

Cost: $10/person for round trip transportation. NO REFUNDS. You will need to bring money for food and shopping. Students, scholars, friends, and families are welcome. Same price for all, regardless of age (children 2 and under are free, provided they sit on a lap and do not take up a seat on the bus). All children must be accompanied by an adult.

Registration: In order to reserve your spot for this trip, you can pay online or in-person at the Michigan Union Ticket Office (MUTO), which is located in the underground level of the Michigan Union. If you are paying in-person, ask for the International Center’s Great Lakes Crossing Outlets shopping trip. Cash or credit cards are accepted. When purchasing the tickets, you must use a promo code and provide a phone number and email (in case of emergency during the trip). Limited space is available and each person is allowed to purchase up to two tickets.

Update: This trip is sold out and we do not keep a wait list. If you are unable to purchase a ticket and still wish to come, on the day of the trip, bring the exact amount of cash ($10 per person) for the trip and meet us at the North Campus location (outside Pierpont Commons on Murfin Avenue). This will be “first come, first served”, so we cannot guarantee you will be able to get on the bus.
