We love welcoming our newest UTC families to campus.  These programs are designed to help you build a sense of connection to the university and the city of Chattanooga - the place your student will call home for the next four years. Additional information will be sent out as each program draws nearer. 

The University looks forward to welcoming you and your student on campus for Operation Move-In! This whole campus celebration will be hosted on Thursday, August 16 to welcome you to campus and celebrate our Class of 2022.  We will have volunteers all day to assist with unloading and unpacking, a student celebration event and a family reception at the end of the day.
