Homecoming is a time for all Volunteers to come together and celebrate the history, traditions, and spirit of the University of Tennessee.

Join us for Homecoming!

October 16–22, 2022

Homecoming is a great time for alumni to reconnect to the campus and reunite with old friends. It is also a great time for current students to celebrate what makes the university truly unique and outstanding. What began in 1794 as a small college in the Southwest Territory is now Tennessee’s flagship university and premier public research institution. Volunteers have been lighting the way for others across Tennessee, and throughout the world ever since.

Homecoming is planned by a campus-wide committee of volunteers and provides opportunities for the campus community to engage in the Volunteer spirit and feel at home on Rocky Top.
