UT Architecture and Design has a long-standing tradition to use the state as a laboratory for applied research with a direct benefit for the citizens of Tennessee. Facilities for research, creative activity, and service include the Nashville Civic Design Center, the Urban Program for Sustainable Design Education (UPSIDE), the Knoxville Downtown Design Studio, and the Burlington Studio. Facilities abroad, in such countries as Poland, Germany and Finland where we have international study programs, are also available to students. Exposure to other cultures and ideas is central to the curriculum of the College of Architecture and Design.

The College of Architecture and Design is part of the University of Tennessee, Knoxville – the state’s flagship campus in educational programs, research and creative activity, and public service. The university offers more than 300 undergraduate, graduate and/or professional degree programs to its 26,000 students, who come from every county in Tennessee, every state in the nation and more than 95 countries. All students in the College of Architecture and Design are encouraged to take courses from departments throughout the university. Furthermore, UT provides important student support services related to campus living – the library, activities and events, recreation, advising, counseling, career placement, health, orientation, and financial aid.


Founded in 1794, UT is big on tradition, and we are proud of our humble beginnings as the first public university chartered west of the Appalachian Divide. We serve the state by educating its citizens, enhancing its culture, and making a difference in people’s lives through research and service. By attracting the best and brightest students and leading faculty, we are on track to join our peers in the nation’s Top 25 public research institutions.
