Update on Housing for Current Students

The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (UTC) acknowledges the concerns raised by students and parents regarding the limited housing options available for our returning students. The UTC Department of Housing and Residence Life is dedicated to exhaustively processing all room assignments and requests.

UTC currently has approximately 3,600 beds on-campus, with 4,700 applications received from students. It's important to note that UTC has a freshmen live-on requirement, underscoring our commitment to fostering an immersive and supportive campus environment for our newest members. This will require us to place many students on a waitlist. We understand that this has left many of our students, and their families, managing feelings of uncertainty and dissatisfaction. Our goal is to support all of our students and provide the resources necessary to address their housing needs. The Department of Housing and Residence Life will assign students on the waitlist by application completion date as space becomes available beginning April 10, 2024 and will continue to confirm housing assignments as cancellations are received. Your patience during this process is greatly appreciated.

Please find information below regarding UTC’s support for students living off-campus:

UTC began the Off-Campus Student Services (OCSS) program in Summer 2023. This program is housed in the Office of Student Outreach and Support (SOS), providing resources and support for students interested in or currently living off-campus. 

-OCSS will host its second Off-Campus Housing fair of the 2023-2024 academic year on April 3, 2024, from 11am-1pm in Heritage Plaza (between the University Center and Lupton Hall).

-OCSS has staff and resources available to assist students with their off-campus housing needs. For more information, visit https://www.utc.edu/offcampus or email [email protected].
