When visiting the School of Dentistry, please enter through the doorway located underneath the School of Dentistry awning near Muhammad Ali Blvd.

Ongoing construction in the area next to the School of Dentistry has led to changes in the vehicle entry point, as well as walking paths available from parking locations. Please reference the map and links below to view updated information related to parking and accessibility options:

Metered Parking

Parking meters (short term) are located all around the School of Dentistry at $0.25 per 12 minutes. Limited metered parking spaces are located on both Muhammad Ali and Preston Streets. Parking meters require quarters (no change is available from school staff). Please ensure that you have adequate time on the meter to avoid receiving a ticket. Use of parking meters is not recommended for long visits to the school.

Garage Parking

Visitor/Patient pay parking is located inside the UofL Health Care Outpatient Center parking structure located at 414 E Chestnut St, Louisville, KY 40202. Following your appointment, please check with a patient service representative at the School of Dentistry front desk for a receipt that allows for $1 off the garage-parking fee.

Disability Parking

Limited parking is available near the School of Dentistry visitor entryway for guests with disabilities. Please be sure to have a decal on display, as you can be fined $200 if one is not present.

If you are in need of wheel chair assistance, or other special accommodations, please call 502-852-5096 prior to your appointment.

Walking Path

Please pardon the construction as the University of Louisville builds a new Pediatric Medical Building beside the School of Dentistry. Due to sidewalk and crosswalk closures along Preston St., you will find a new walking path to the School of Dentistry from the Chestnut St. Parking Garage.
Please see the map to view the walking path.

UofL Shuttle Service

To better serve visitors to the School of Dentistry, the UofL shuttle will now make two additional stops as part of its regular route; one just to the left as you exit the first floor of the Chestnut St. Parking Garage and the second along Muhammad Ali Blvd. near the front entrance of the School of Dentistry. The UofL shuttle is free and runs approximately every 15 minutes. We hope this will assist in your visit to the school! To view shuttle stop locations, please click here to view the map.
