Residence Hall Tours


Your life as a Tennessee Volunteer starts on campus! Explore your living options through the University Housing Quick Tour or the University Housing Full Tour and choose the best fit for you.  Our Vols @ Home team offer daily tours of housing options available to first year students by showcasing his/her room. Availability of specific halls is dependent on student schedules, and not all halls may be available for viewing.

If you’re on campus, it is also a good idea to schedule a campus tour and meet with your academic department.

Residence Hall tours will not be available May 20-28 due to Destination Imagination.
