UTHSC Campus Tours


The Office of Admissions welcomes visitors for the opportunity to get a firsthand view of the university. We invite you to schedule a campus tour to learn more about the numerous programs offered at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center.

General Information

UTHSC Campus

Campus tours include a general admissions session, an extensive walking campus tour (please dress comfortably), and individual admissions counseling appointments (if requested). Prospective students may bring up to two guests with them on the tour. All general campus tours are inclusive of all six colleges and do not focus on any single program. Opportunities to tour a particular college or program are available once a student has submitted an application or been accepted to a program. No tours are provided on holidays or during the months of November, December, January, and February.

High School Students

The University of Tennessee Health Science Center is mainly a graduate university, therefore an information session is offered to high school students instead of a campus tour. The process for the information session is as follows:

  • An admissions representative visits the high school and talks to the group about the university.
  • If students show exceptional interest in gaining more knowledge pertaining to higher education during the information session, they will be offered an invitation to visit the UTHSC campus for a brief overview of the university.

Only four high school group information sessions are given during the tour season (from March until October). We cannot guarantee your preferred date, so please try to schedule your visit at least thirty days in advance.

Students must be in the 9th grade or higher to visit the campus. We ask that a chaperone is provided for every 10 students in your group. Chaperones are responsible for the conduct of each student participating.
