Not too big. Not too small. We’re just right.

UTC combines the opportunities and amenities of a large campus with the friendliness and personalized attention of a much smaller one.

Awesome professors. Real world experience. Unrivaled location. State-of-the-art spaces. A welcoming community of Mocs. You’ll never want to leave.

But don’t take our word for it. Come see for yourself.

Tour Tips

  • Register early and bring a copy of your confirmation. Tours fill up quickly.
  • Chattanooga is in the Eastern time zone! If you're coming from the Central time zone, you'll be losing an hour. Don't worry, you'll gain it on the way back! 
  • Wear comfortable shoes and be prepared for weather. Explore campus by foot at peak comfort. Don’t forget the umbrella.
  • Make the most of your visit. Obviously our tour guides are amazing. But, we hope you’ll talk to more than just their smiling faces. Set up appointments with departments of interest in advance. Simply reach out to them with an email or a call; or learn more about our Focus Fridays and Departmental Tours.
  • Tell us what you need. We want to make our campus accessible for everyone. Need an accommodation? Let our office know when you schedule your tour.

From our gorgeous riverfront and breathtaking mountain views to our nation-leading internet speeds, Chattanooga has a lot going for it. Our thriving tech, start-up, foodie and art scenes mean we have something for everyone.

It’s no secret. People can’t stop talking about our city.

Chattanooga was recently recognized by The New York TimesFortuneLonely Planet and Southern Living, to name a few. Outside magazine named us the Best Town Ever, twice.

And UTC’s campus is in the heart of it all.
