New Student Union

It is an exciting time for the University of Tennessee. For the first time since 2011, the campus is engaged in a full scale Master Plan. The master plan will align our buildings and infrastructure with the university’s Strategic Vision.

International planning firm, Ayers Saint Gross (ASG) has partnered with native Knoxville firm McCarty Holsaple McCarty (MHM) with an unparalleled history of work on our campus. Over the spring and summer, the consultants will host open forums and workshops. The plan draft will be completed by Fall 2022.

Listening to campus is an integral part of the process. In addition to in-person events, the design team is soliciting input through an online survey. The survey is open to student, faculty, staff, and community members.

Please take a few moments to complete the survey linked here. Your input is greatly appreciated.

Survey participants are eligible for a Volshop Swag prize drawing including VolShop novelty desk sign and miniature dry-erase ‘The Rock’. Survey participation is not necessary for prize eligibility. See receptionist at Facilities Services 2040 Sutherland Ave. to register.


The master plan provides a long-range vision for the campuses of the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and the Institute of Agriculture.

The university uses the master plan and approved updates as a roadmap to identify short- and long-term opportunities and define phases for development of facilities and the campus as a whole.
