 Driving Directions & Maps

Construction on Campus

With significant construction taking place around campus our main location this year has moved to the Alumni Memorial Building located at 1408 Middle Drive, Knoxville, TN.  Please visit for more information about current construction on campus.

Parking Information

Parking for attendees will be available in Staff Lot 9.  This lot is directly across from Gate 21 of Neyland Stadium on Phillip Fulmer Way.  If Lot 9 is full overflow parking will be available in the G10 Stadium Parking Garage entrance past stadium on Phillip Fulmer Way.

Buses – Buses may temporarily stop to unload at the bus transfer point right outside Neyland Stadium’s Gate 21 on Phillip Fulmer Way.   A uniformed officer will be present to facilitate unloading in the morning and loading after the Awards Ceremony.  Please note that because of construction near the transfer point, there will be limited space for buses to stop at a time. Once buses are unloaded drivers will be directed further down Phillip Fulmer Way were parking will be marked for Science Olympiad buses only at the Thompson Boling Arena.

Bus passengers will load the buses after the awards ceremony at the bus parking area along along Phillip Fulmer Way beside Thompson Boling Arena.
