Turn to our Career Development Office. The staff can guide students in: choosing a major; career exploration and planning; internships; summer and part-time employment; and full-time job placement.
The Center for Career Development also conducts workshops that include resume writing, interviewing skills, business etiquette, and salary negotiation.
Students with documented disabilities can receive assistance from the Office of Disability Services to arrange accommodations and services that enhance access to our facilities and programs.

UT has a network of campus libraries for students to use called the University Libraries system. These state-of-the-art facilities provide: print and electronic collections; reference and instructional services; and top-notch technology resources.
Has your student’s laptop quit working? Do you keep hearing about a need for group study space? The Commons, on the second floor of Hodges Library, serves these needs and more.
It offers study space and a help desk with information and support for computer and network services (for instance device support, e-mail, password resets).
Students can also check out a laptop or camera, learn how to use media workstations and a lab called The Studio, watch videos for class, get help using library databases, and ask reference questions.
Your student can lead a very active life on the UT campus by using our fully equipped, wide variety of indoor and outdoor RecSports facilities.
Students can sign up for classes, rent equipment, register for intramurals, or become certified as a lifeguard or in CPR and first aid.
Our facilities have space for intramurals, courts for several types of sports, a track, indoor and outdoor pools, cardiovascular and strength training areas, a climbing wall, and class space.
Enrolled students automatically receive membership access for RecSports when they pay the University Programs & Services Fee.
One of the ways we protect and educate students on campus is the UT Police Department, a dual-accredited agency with more than 50 uniformed officers.
Students can take advantage of police programming such as Rape Aggression Defense classes or Operation ID to get their valuables including laptops, iPods, bicycles, cellphones, engraved and cataloged with an ID number.
Students can stay informed during emergencies and developing situations on campus by signing up for UT Alert. The system sends text messages and e-mails. Anyone who is not a member of our campus community should follow the main UT website for updates.
Emergency Phone System
If a student needs to call 911, UT has an emergency phone system called blue phones throughout campus. Students can look for the orange poles with a blue sign and blue light on top and use the phone to call the 911 dispatch center directly.
The Campus Safety Guide provides tips and information to help students stay safe during severe weather, emergencies that threaten personal safety, and within work areas.
When you and your student need to get around campus, the T provides safe, convenient, and efficient bus service. All T vehicles are accessible to passengers with disabilities. Fares are free for all passengers.
If you want to track the T, or get route information and updates, the University of Tennessee App makes it easy.
Students can rent bicycles to make getting around campus a breeze. Different types of bikes are available for rent and UT offers rates for different lengths of time.
If your student isn’t bringing a car to campus, UT has a rental car option that could come in handy. The university hosts Zipcars for students to rent for an hourly or daily rate, with gas and insurance included.

The Multicultural Student Life Office includes an Academic Support Unit that offers a tutorial program for individuals or small groups.
