Welcome Convention of Jehovah's Witnesses!

The 2015 Convention of Jehovah’s Witnesses is scheduled in the Thompson-Boling Arena on July 3-5, 2015.  The University of Tennessee will host 12,000 visitors to campus for a 3 day event.  To accommodate our visitors, most of the staff and commuter parking areas south of Hodges Library have been dedicated to conference attendees.  Those parking areas include S23 at Pat Head Summitt, the McClung Garage, Staff 9 and all the areas surrounding the Arena.

A shuttle service will operate a route each day in the southwest corner of campus.  Buses will circle along Lake Loudoun Blvd, Chamique Holdsclaw Drive, Todd Helton Drive and Volunteer Boulevard West.  The service will operate mornings and evenings of each day, 7:45am-9:45am and 5:00pm – 6:30pm.

Please contact our office if you have questions about parking for those days.  Parking and Transit Services will be close on Friday, July 3rd due to the university’s Administrative Closing.
