Getting Started as an Adjunct Faculty Member at UTK


Resources for getting around campus and preparing to teach

UT offers hangtag parking permits for faculty and staff, via the Parking & Transit Services office, but these may be expensive for those teaching only one or two courses.  An online parking map is also available, showing where visitor parking can be found, and there are also metered parking spaces available along the edges of campus.  For those who don’t mind a walk, an open metered space can usually be found on Lake Avenue, along the campus’s north end.

For those needing accommodations getting from one end of campus to another, the “T” bus service is available, with a nifty mobile app for locating bus stops, routes, and live tracking information for the buses themselves!

UT offers an interactive campus map, which you can use to locate your classrooms, office space, and a variety of departments. In the menu on the left, click “Buildings” and locate the one you want to find.  Note, too, that the map has an “Accessibility” overlay—click that menu item for guidance on accessible parking, building entrances, curb cuts, elevators, and video phones.

Depending on the nature of your position, you may have questions about your hours, benefits, or status within UT’s employment system.  The HR office provides a variety of information related to your employment at UT.

Like many other services, information on pay can be accessed via the My UTK site and UT’s IRIS system.  For questions about your pay, consult the Payroll Office.  If you find you can’t access the My UTK site, jump to the Troubleshooting portion of this guide.
