"A connector to the main roads"

This street is an important street to keep the university functioning. On it is the Center for Student Services, which houses the UM Honors Department, Disability Services, and other administration posts. Like all UM streets on campus, it is not busy when school is not in session. However, during school, especially move in when approximately 5,000 students move in to campus housing every year, it can be very busy. Merrick is unlike Stanford Drive, Dickinson Drive, and Memorial Drive because it does not house any student living or classroom facilities. This makes it less busy than the others, but it can still be crowded during events on campus, especially at the nearby Bank United Center.

"A little (but useful) street on campus"

It is one of the few through streets connecting Dickinson Drive and Stanford Drive. Be careful, near the Architecture Building, the road is only one way (from Dickinson to Stanford, not vice versa). Eaton Residential College, as well as the Center for Student Services is located on this street. Like most campus streets, it is only busy during the weekdays during the academic year. It is especially busy the third week in August and the second week in May when move in and move out of the campus residences occurs.
