Phase I

The Alan and Wendy Wilson Career Development Suite

This spacious area provides our students with access to expert career advising, interview skills training, and job placement services worthy of a Top 25 public research institution. The suite also provides fifteen interview rooms and a welcoming space for the hundreds of employer representatives who visit campus each year to recruit our students.

Outdoor Plazas

The completion of Phase I added a new outdoor showcase area to campus. The beautiful open-air plaza between the new Student Union and the Haslam Business Building offers the campus community a park-like atmosphere. A new Pedestrian Bridge complements a connection to the extended Joe Johnson-John Ward Pedestrian Walkway.


With varied food vendor options and twice the capacity of the old University Center, the Student Union seats more than 1,100 diners offering patrons the opportunity to meet, socialize, and catch up on studying.
