Alternate Routes, Sept. 2018-Late 2019

UNC-CH School of Dentistry Student Clinic, Resident/Graduate Clinics and Dental Faculty Practice patients may access Tarrson Hall by one of the following three options:

1. Park in Dogwood Deck and walk to Tarrson Hall. Take the elevators to the ground level of Dogwood Deck. At the ground level, cross at the intersection of Manning Drive and West Drive, then walk up West Drive to the entrance of Tarrson Hall.

2. Use the golf cart shuttle service in Dogwood Deck to UNC Hospitals (additional travel time). Take the golf cart shuttle to the Cancer Hospital and board the ACC shuttle bus (estimated departure every 10-15 minutes).

Upon boarding, patients should tell the driver they are receiving treatment at the UNC-CH School of Dentistry. The shuttle will drop off dental patients at the Koury Oral Health Sciences patient drop-off circle.

Dental patients will receive a card with a phone number on it prior to getting off the ACC shuttle, and should call this number when they are ready to be picked up. The ACC shuttle bus will return and drop patients back off at the Cancer Hospital, at which time patients may take the golf cart shuttle back to Dogwood Deck.

3. Patients with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) challenges may begin parking in the Ambulatory Care Center (ACC) parking lot beginning July 23, 2018. The ACC shuttle will pick them up following the route in option two (2) above.
