The University of Tennessee’s new Sorority Village on Morgan Hill now has three houses occupied by sorority chapters.
Chapters Delta Zeta and Alpha Chi Omega moved in earlier this week. The women of Kappa Delta are moving in this weekend.
UT expects a total of seven houses to be completed this fall, with as many as 270 women living in the development by the end of the semester.
Sorority Village will have thirteen houses and one administrative/meeting building once it is completed next year. The administrative/meeting building will also open this fall.
Sorority fall recruitment begins Sunday, August 19 and events will take place at the Panhellenic Building on Cumberland Avenue and the three open houses in Sorority Village. Nearly 900 women are registered to participate in fall recruitment.
The university has accommodated several sorority chapters that expected their houses to be completed this month. Most women are in residence halls. The Sigma Kappa sorority chapter is moving into an unoccupied house in Fraternity Park on a temporary basis while their house is being completed.
All new property is subject to compliance reviews and a fire marshal inspection before they open. In the works for more than six years, work began on the Sorority Village infrastructure in the fall of 2009.
