Lot 7 Parking Information

For Visitors to the Min Kao Building:

Most of the parking areas on the UTK campus require parking permits so please plan ahead. It is best to make prior arrangements with someone in the center to use the parking spots in Lot 7. Your contact at CURENT will be able to procure a parking pass or passses for you for your visit. If you do not have a contact, please email Judy Evans at jevans20@utk.edu or call 865-974-9712. CURENT has one reserved space in Staff lot 7, which is on Cumberland Ave. and just across the creek from the Min H. Kao building. We also have dashboard parking permits for lot 7.
