Welcome UT Students!

Attention Students!

Welcome UT Students, Parking Information for Cumberland Avenue and Downtown


It’s that time of year again! Thousands of University of Tennessee students are making their way to Knoxville and will be moving into apartments and dormitories.


The City of Knoxville and Public Building Authority (PBA) officials welcome the students and remind them and their parents of City parking enforcement regulations that took effect July 1, 2016.


The City has installed over 1,000 parking meters, adjusting rates for on-street and City garage parking, and increasing parking enforcement. The goal is to create more turnover of on-street parking spaces in high-demand areas, which benefits merchants and restaurant owners.


For general parking information, visit http://www.knoxvilletn.gov/parking. For information on downtown parking garages, see here. To contact PBA, please call (865) 215-2434, during regular business hours.


Meanwhile, here’s a Q&A to help newcomers to Knoxville better understand the dos and don’ts on parking on City streets in the Cumberland District and in downtown. (Click on question to expand)
