Pocket Guide: University of Memphis University of Memphis Hotels

Pocket Guide: Memphis University of Memphis Hotels

In the Normal Station neighbourhood of East Memphis, the University of Memphis was founded in 1912. As an American public research university, it has a number of different schools, colleges and research institutions, including the FedEx Institute of Technology, and the Center for Earthquake Research and Information.

Set about five miles east of downtown, the campus has a significant number of historic buildings in a leafy, park-like setting. More contemporary buildings arose as part of the university’s expansion in the 1960s and 70s. Some campuses moved permanently in later years, such as the University of Memphis School of Law, which relocated to downtown Memphis in 2010.
