Campus information

A “park-like” setting, Tennessee Wesleyan’s main campus is made up of more than 21 buildings on 40 acres, including a lush landscape of mature trees and beautiful 1800’s architecture. The size of campus allows students to move easily between classes, administrative offices and services, athletic events and college activities.

The Tennessee Wesleyan College and Fort Sanders School of Nursing, in addition to an evening business program, is housed at the college’s satellite location in Knoxville. The Knoxville site is located on Cogdill Road, just off of Pellissippi Parkway. Its facilities provide students with the latest technology and spacious classrooms.

Tennessee Wesleyan College occupies a 40-acre tract of land two blocks north of the courthouse square in downtown Athens, the county seat of McMinn County. Athens is located near I-75, midway between Chattanooga and Knoxville in the heart of the Sweetwater Valley.


The campus includes a variety of attractive and comfortable residence halls. In addition to Fowler Hall and Keith Hall, the college also offers two apartment-style residence halls: Nocatula Apartments and Wesley Commons.
