The University of Memphis campus is continually expanding, improving, innovating – to meet the needs of each of our students, faculty and staff. Tours are offered every weekday. Visit to schedule a visit.

New Student Recreation & Fitness Center — COMING FALL 2018
Health and fitness, intramural sports, aquatics—we will take it all to the next level with a new facility designed to be totally state-of-the-art. Everything students could want will be here, from expanded fitness and locker rooms, more intramural fields with artificial turf, additional basketball courts, an indoor track, lap and leisure swimming, and spacious areas for cardiovascular equipment, free weights and group exercise classes. This signature building will be located on the southern edge of campus, connected by a pedestrian overpass, across the tracks on Southern Avenue, for easy and safe access to the facility.

Tiger Den
With fresh food as its focus, Tiger Den offers tons of great choices, all in one place. Ever popular with students, Subway and Steak ‘n Shake, are also located at the Tiger Den.

University Center
The gathering point for most things social. Inside you will find a three-story atrium with a dedicated lounge area to decompress from hard days. Here you can grab convenience foods, like Chick-fil-A, Taco Bell and Dunkin’ Donuts. There’s also a 24-hour computer lab, U.S. Post Office, copy center and offices for many student organizations.
