Welcome to Martin, Tennessee and UTM!
Martin is a quiet, peaceful city in northwest Tennessee. It is two hours from Memphis and 2.5 hours from Nashville. Martin is a very walkable city. Classes, banks, shopping, restaurants and laundry are easily accessible by foot or bicycle. The traditional small-town life is perfect for students of all ages and backgrounds and it is great for international students to experience American culture first hand.
UT Martin is among the safest four-year public college campuses in Tennessee. The beautiful campus has an award-winning variety of trees and flower gardens, with lighted walkways throughout, and with just 6,700 students from 34 different countries, it is both diverse and tranquil.
The university has modern state-of-the-art library facilities and fiber-optic cable connections in university housing and around campus. All students have an automatic membership to the Student Recreation Center, where they can play volleyball, basketball or badminton, lift weights, use the cardio machines and take part in fitness classes such as Zumba and Yoga.
Sporting events, fraternity and sorority gatherings, live performances and festivals make this a perfect place to make friends. Off campus, there is shopping, dining out, and boating, fishing and camping at Reelfoot Lake.
