Welcome home, Volunteers!

Students of the University of Tennessee call Knoxville home. While many enjoy the convenience and comfort of our phenomenal residence halls, UT has a substantial commuter population. If you are a commuter student, considering commuting to UT, or already living off-campus, Commuter Student Engagement is here to help!

Living off-campus is a big decision. Commuter Student Engagement wants to ensure that you are prepared to make informed decisions regarding your off-campus housing as well as ensure your commuter experience is exceptional and you remain connected to UT.

If you have a question that isn’t answered here or need further assistance, feel free to tweet us @commuterVOLS or email We are here to help!
