Schedule a Campus Visit

To request a campus visit, we welcome you to contact our Admissions Office by emailing us at or calling us at 423-439-6338.  Our regulars office hours are 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (EST) Monday through Friday.  Please let us know what date (or day of the week) and time (or time of day) would be best for you.

Our Location

Gatton College of Pharmacy is located on the James H. Quillen Veterans Affairs Medical Center (VA) campus, which is across the street from ETSU's main campus.  The College is building 7 (corner of Fifth Street and Maple Avenue).  Please park in the large lot on the corner of Fifth Street and Ashe Avenue.

The VA campus is situated on federal property called Mountain Home, which is surrounded by the City of Johnson City, Tennessee.  Please be aware that some GPS systems and web mapping services have difficulty finding Mountain Home, so we suggest using the following address to reach the entrance of the VA campus:

1500 West State of Franklin Road
Johnson City, TN 37604

From West State of Franklin Road, turn onto Mountain Home Drive (between two banks). Cross the railroad tracks and enter the VA campus by turning left onto Lake Drive West. At the first stop sign, turn left onto Fifth Street. Continue on Fifth Street, and the parking lot is on the left.
