Housing Accommodations

Students who wish to be assigned LGBTQ+ friendly housing can contact Sara Peters at sara-peters@utc.edu or 423-425-5648. We will work with housing and other campus resources to provide appropriate placement.

 

Preferred Name Instructions

Within the UTC software systems students can enter their preferred (chosen) name to ensure that they are not dead-named on class rolls, within the Canvas system, email, and various other systems. This is not foolproof and sometimes the system doesn’t update immediately. If you have updated your information with both processes and you notice that certain systems are not correct after a week, please contact Sara Peters at sara-peters@utc.edu.

  • Students can find both links to update their preferred first name in MyMocsNet on the Self-Service Banner tab.  

Banner screen for preferred name            

  • The first link updates Banner and most of the systems on campus such as Blackboard. 
  • The second link updates the Campus Directory and items like the email alias.
