Campus Life

Engineering students spend lots of time in lectures and labs requiring focus, time commitment and hard work. If you want to succeed as an engineering student, good time management skills will help you achieve your academic goals.

Housing and Dining

Dorms at the University of TennesseeYou’ve been admitted, and now you’re an official UT engineering student. Once you get on campus, where are you going to live? And how do you find pizza?

Freshman students who are not living with a parent or guardian are required to live in university housing during their first year of college. The Tickle College of Engineering offers an optional housing program for freshmen known as the Engage Learning Community. This community gives you the opportunity to live in the same residence hall close to other first-year engineering students. Since you will be taking common classes with your neighbors, it is easier to share notes, form study groups and develop a sense of camaraderie. You can find more information on residence halls at the UT Housing website.
