We can’t wait to show you around our home sweet home!


You’ll find a place that feels like home the moment you set foot on Rocky Top. Campus is filled with energy and tradition, but it’s also easy to find green spaces and quiet corners for study and relaxation. Just off campus, you’ll find a friendly Southern city and plenty of opportunities for outdoor adventure.
