The mission of Tennessee Temple University is to provide Christ-centered
higher education that transforms lives academically and spiritually for the glory of God.
Tennessee Temple University is a mile from I-24, and four miles from both I-75 and Chattanooga's airport, Lovell Field. Chattanooga is within 2 hours of Nashville and Knoxville, Tennessee, and Atlanta, Georgia. Proximity to these cities affords students a variety of options for entertainment, activities, trips, and outreach, as well as a chance to see other sites that surrounding states and cities have to offer.
Chattanooga, Tennessee is located at the foot of beautiful Lookout Mountain and on the banks of the Tennessee River. This makes our location perfect for those interested in outdoor activities such as hiking, caving, biking, white water rafting, rock climbing, river swimming, rappelling, canoeing and cliff jumping. For those not so daring, there are several parks within miles of the campus for picnicking, studying , or just enjoying our beautiful city. The nearby Chickamauga National Military Park is the largest national military park in the country. A number of natural attractions, as well as TVA water projects, are also within miles of our campus.
TTU desires to plan events that are centered not only on our campus, but also take advantage of the city around us. We encourage our students to explore the attractive city we live in. Among the popular attractions our scenic city has to offer, Tennessee Temple University students enjoy the charm of the river boat cruises, plays ,concerts, community and city wide events such as Swingfest Jazz Festival, The 4 Bridges Art Festival, and Nightfall in the Park. There are a number of historical museums and battlefields in the metropolitan area, many of which offer discounts or free days to the community and college students.
TTU also offers its students exclusive discounts to several of our community businesses such as The Rush Fitness Facility, The Rave Movie Theater, Qdoba, Papa Johns, Six Flags, and White Water Rafting.
