Knoxville offers small town charm with the amenities you expect to find in a big city. Restaurants, shopping, an outdoor farmers’ market, street festivals, the Sunsphere, history collections, and museums are all just a few short blocks from campus. A free downtown trolley will take you around town or you can take advantage of the city’s plentiful greenways.

If the Great Outdoors is your thing, Knoxville is home to plenty of hiking and biking trails, rivers, lakes, and parks. The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is just a 45-minute drive from Knoxville and encompasses over 800 square miles of hiking trails and beautiful scenery.
