Parking Lot 7A is designated for residents only. To park there, residents must purchase a University Residential Permit, which can be used in all other campus parking lots. GEA residents may use this permit to park at GEA, in lot 7A or for street parking. (Conference guests staying at least eight nights may purchase a monthly parking pass for Lot 7A from the Conference Coordinator for $45.)

Guests, including conference guests, may park in Lot 7 and must have a temporary parking permit displayed at all times.
