Patient Parking

Parking in a busy or new area can be challenging. Our goal is to get you parked and to your appointment at the University Eye Institute (UEI) without any challenges. 

Parking for patients and guests of the UEI and UH College of Optometry (UHCO) is on the first floor of the Welcome Center Student Garage, which is located at the corner of Calhoun Road and Wheeler Ave. (the UEI is located across Calhoun).
Look for posted signs on campus to help direct you.

Patient Parking Garage Entrance

The Welcome Center Student Garage has two entrances. The student parking entrance is located on the north side of the Welcome Center Student Garage. The second entrance is our patient parking garage, which is located on the southwest side of the student garage.

Parking Validation

You will receive a parking voucher once you reach your appointment. This voucher provides free parking our patients.

Accessing the UEI and UHCO

After parking, please exit the northeast corner of the garage facing Calhoun Road by the stop-signed crosswalk to UHCO or the UEI.
