Location Info

In 1794, Blount College was founded in the then small city of Knoxville, Tennessee, charging only $8 per session. Nearly two hundred and twenty-eight years later, that small college has become the bustling University of Tennessee, Knoxville: home to over 30,000 volunteers and the 2022 National Order of the Arrow Conference! The sprawling campus of 910 acres boasts 294 buildings that service their 30,559 students, and soon, our 8,000 NOAC-bound Arrowmen. Though it hasn’t hosted a conference since 2000, UT is no slouch when it comes to hosting NOACs. It’s hosted three conferences, serving over 17,000 Arrowmen since 1977.

As is customary at NOAC, during your stay at UT, you will be situated in the university’s dorms which are modern with sleek interiors highlighted in bright orange and white, UT’s colors. Food will be provided by the experts at UT. Modern, healthy, and delicious menu options will be available for your enjoyment at every meal – it definitely isn’t your normal camp food! As you wander the campus, you will be astounded by the signature red brick-style buildings with lush green lawns and large trees in your home for the week. You’ll also spend time in the massive Knoxville Convention Center that will house signature NOAC events.

Ultimately, the University of Tennessee, Knoxville will be the perfect location for NOAC 2022! You can find out more about this amazing campus and all it has to offer at utk.edu or by emailing concierge@oa-bsa.org.
