Residence hall check-in begins Saturday at 8 a.m. for women and 1 p.m. for men. Students unsure of their housing assignments or any details of the move-in process should visit the University Housing website.
University staff will be on hand Saturday to assist students and families.
Students moving in to the residence halls can utilize temporary parking areas around each hall, in the University Center Parking Garage and in staff lots. Click here for a map showing parking options during Move-In and campus road closures.
Use caution while driving on campus and in surrounding areas. In addition to increased foot and motor traffic as families move their students in to residence halls, ongoing construction and maintenance projects have affected some popular traffic routes.
-Phillip Fulmer Way in front of Neyland Stadium and UT’s bus transfer facility will open prior to the first home football game on Sept. 4. The sidewalks along this area are closed to pedestrian traffic.
-KAT buses and campus shuttles running “The T” routes will continue their detour routes until Phillip Fulmer Way reopens, at which point bus routes will return to normal. Read more about this project here.
-Motorists on Neyland Drive between Lake Loudoun Boulevard and Leinard Lane will see reduced speeds and narrowed lanes as work continues on underground utilities.
-There may be temporary lane closures around campus during move-in weekend, though nothing is scheduled at this time.
Pedestrian Safety on Campus
The University of Tennessee Police Department (UTPD) has suggested safer, quicker routes for pedestrians on campus.
Andy Holt Avenue at Phillip Fulmer Way is one of the busiest intersections on campus. UTPD is encouraging members of the campus community to use the pedestrian bridges at the University Center (UC) as an alternative to using the crosswalks to ease its congestion. Two bridges connect the UC to The Hill while two other paths take pedestrians alongside the Haslam Business Building toward the intersection of Andy Holt Avenue and Volunteer Boulevard. These walkways are accessed at the second level of the UC, off the plaza.
