A block of 100 rooms has been reserved at the Four Points Knoxville located steps away from campus. The rooms will be available at a discounted rate of $92 a night. Be sure to mention SBS when reserving your room. Parking is available at this hotel.

Other walking distance hotels include the Hilton Knoxville and Crowne Plaza, as well as several others.

Buses and trolley buses have free routes in the areas around Downtown and campus.

City parking in garages and metered spaces are usually free on weekends. Visitor parking spaces on campus are almost non-existent (Campus Parking Map). Some relatively close street parking (e.g. Fort Sanders Neighborhood) should be available on the weekend.

Additionally, we will provide as many rooms/spaces as possible via graduate student volunteers. Please be sure fill out the Student Travel Aid Application if you want to be considered for this opportunity.
