Infrastructure Planning and Facilities has opened its new car wash at 409 Service Road (northeast of the T.B. Simon Power Plant) for campus customers who drive university vehicles. The Service Road fueling station opened for business a few months ago, and now the car wash is open at that location as well.
The new car wash is open for business from 7 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. Monday to Friday, and accommodates most university cars and trucks less than 7 feet in height. University vehicles with ladder racks and dual rear wheels are not permitted, but a hand power-wash wand is still available for those larger vehicles at the IPF Transportation Services Service Garage at Spartan Stadium.
Customers should use the green fuel purchasing card (used to purchase fuel on campus) for their car-wash transactions by following the instructions located at the kiosk outside of the car wash entrance. An attendant is on duty during business hours to assist campus customers, including support with campus fuel purchasing cards.
In line with MSU’s sustainable practices, the car wash uses reclaimed water to conserve the university’s resources. Approximately 70 percent of the water used in the car wash is reclaimed.
The former car wash at Spartan Stadium is now closed. For the foreseeable future, the service garage will remain at the stadium location and the vehicle-rental office will remain at the Central Services Building just east of Spartan Stadium. Customers will continue to pick up and drop off vehicles at the vehicle-rental office and will use the Service Road fueling station to fuel and wash their university vehicles.
