Walk – Through Metal Detectors Now in Use at Thompson – Boling Arena

As a reminder for the upcoming Tennessee Basketball season, the University of Tennessee has implemented a new security measure to enhance patron safety at all events at Thompson-Boling Arena.

Walk-through metal detectors are now in place and operational at all arena entrances.

Please be advised that this new security measure may add time to the process of entering the arena, so fans are encouraged to allow additional time for entry. Patrons are also encouraged to bring only necessary items with them in order to ensure a smooth and timely arena entry.

Tennessee’s Clear Bag Policy is still in place, and all bags will be checked before entrants pass through the metal detectors. There will be signage and staff to help direct fans through the process at each entry point.

To expedite entry into Thompson-Boling Arena, Gate F—located on the southeast corner of the arena—will be opened this season.

In addition to Tennessee athletic events, the metal detectors also will be in use for all ticketed arena events, such as concerts and other entertainment shows.
