Student Life

Committing to study at a university is about more than academics. It’s also about finding the right place to call home. Our campus is located near downtown Knoxville, a thriving modern city with small town charm that is home to music venues, museums, galleries, annual festivals, local sports teams, excellent restaurants, craft breweries, and eclectic shops. Read more about Knoxville.

UT is also perfectly situated for outdoor adventure. The Tennessee River runs by campus, which is just a few miles from Knoxville’s Urban Wilderness, a system of more than 1,000 forested acres with over 50 miles of multiuse trails that is attracting national attention. Campus is also just a short drive away from the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the most-visited national park in the country.

While studying at UT as a graduate student, there are a number of resources available to support you in successfully completing your program. The Graduate School website lists several of those resources.
