Directions, Patient & Visitor Parking

PATIENTS ONLY:  Fletcher Street Parking Structure

Parking in the Fletcher Street Parking Structure is reserved for School of Dentistry patients on Level P (Plaza) and Level 5. Click or scroll down for details on Visitor Parking (Palmer Drive Parking Structure).

The cashier-attended parking located at the Fletcher Structure Plaza (P) level is restricted to patients of the School of Dentistry.  Patients are required to have a stamped ticket to verify patient status when exiting the reserved area.  Some clinics issue a QR (Quick Response) code ticket in addition to a stampled ticket which is required upon exiting.  The stamp or QR code is obtained from the clinic or area where the patient has received service. 

  • Cost:  $2.00 per visit with a stamped ticket (and QR code, as issued). 
  • Note: A $30 fine will be charged to anyone parking in the patient reserved area exiting without a stamped ticket (and QR code, as issued).
  • Parking Entrance: Enter the structure via the "up" ramp on the left side of the entrance.
