FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How will I know when I’ve been assigned?
All communication is through the STUDENT’S UTC email account! Once assigned you will receive an email with instructions on how to confirm the assignment by paying the $225 pre-payment.

How do I check my UTC email account?

Why didn’t I get assigned to one of my building preferences?
The building you requested did not have space at the time of assignment to honor your request. Assignments are made based on application complete date and room availability and are not guaranteed.

Why can’t I list a roommate on my application?
We are unable to accommodate roommate requests for transfer students at this time.

What if I missed the deadline to pay the pre-payment? What happens to my room?
Students who do not pay the $225 pre-payment within the 10 days will have their application and assignment cancelled for non-payment. If you still plan to attend UTC, email housing@utc.edu and request that your application be reactivated, you will then be eligible for the next assignment date.

How do I update my preferences (building and/or meal plan)?
Please call the Housing Office to change and/or update your preferences.

What is overflow housing?
Temporary accommodations (traditionally we have used a local hotel), until we can provide you a permanent room assignment on campus.
