About Johnson University

Johnson, a private, coeducational institution of higher learning offering associate, baccalaureate, and graduate degrees, strives to be faithful through twenty-first century methods to its historic purpose of preparing students to preach the Gospel.

Johnson seeks qualified students committed to communicating throughout the world the message of peace, wholeness, and restoration as described in Christian Scriptures. We enroll students from all age groups and from diverse geographic, ethnic, and social backgrounds. Consistent with our historic practice, we endeavor to make education available to students regardless of their financial resources.

Johnson engages a faculty supportive of its mission and committed to teaching and advising; scholarly and creative activity; and service to churches, Johnson, and the larger community. We create a supportive environment for spiritual formation in which students and faculty can identify abilities and realize responsibilities for personal growth and for service to others in the churches and the human community. We also provide financial resources, facilities, and administrative and academic services that support student and faculty achievement.

Campus information

The beautiful campus with its community atmosphere provides the perfect setting for students to prepare for careers of service to Christ and others. On campus, JUTN students enjoy plenty of opportunities to connect with fellow students and their professors, since many live on campus. 

Johnson University Tennessee is part of the Johnson University System which offers more than 70 bachelor’s, master’s, Ph.D., and associate’s programs across three campuses—in East Tennessee, Central Florida, and online. All programs include a biblical core and an arts & science core—designed to equip individuals for Christian ministries and other strategic vocations to extend the kingdom of God.

Johnson University is located twelve miles southeast of Knoxville, Tennessee in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains.


JUTN’s beautiful Knoxville campus boasts Johnson Hall and Brown Hall, two modern and well-equipped residence halls housing undergraduate students. Each two-person dorm room has internet access, personal temperature controls, movable furniture, and a private bath. The residence halls are each outfitted with two full-sized kitchens and additional storage space that is available to students during the academic year. Housing options for non-traditional students are also available.

Clark Hall also contains single-occupancy rooms (in which the 3rd floor is often used for guest housing) and a women’s workout facility.

All dormitories have a live-in residence director to maintain dorm operations and security. Each wing has two on-site residence assistants (RAs) who plan outings and events. RAs also help encourage students to maintain the standard of conduct to which they have committed. All residence hall staff serve as a resource to students, fostering an environment of encouragement, comfort, and security.

Residence halls are within easy walking distance of the academic buildings, dining hall, and the student center (EAC). Bicycle racks are available across campus, and ample parking for student vehicles is available near the dorms.
