1. Parking Changes at the Dunn Dental Building

In preparation of upcoming construction for the new College of Dentistry Building, some of the parking lots around the current building have been reconfigured.

The O-Lot (Dunn Dental patient and visitor parking) is no longer accessible for parking. Parking for patients and visitors has been moved to the N-Lot (off Beale Street between the Dunn Dental Building and McDonald’s).

Below is a map showing the impacted areas. The red arrows indicate the access route in to the Dunn Dental Building from T, X, and W Lots.

The construction for the new College of Dentistry building is expected to be completed in 2023.

If you have questions, please contact Clayton Harrington with Parking Services at
