UT has been granted state approval to purchase properties on White Avenue in Fort Sanders to build a new classroom/laboratory facility on Cumberland Avenue. The proposal to the State Building Commission helps UT address a significant shortfall of academic space. The Commission’s approval authorizes the purchase of three large houses. The new four-to-five story building will provide approximately 200,000 gross square feet of new academic space along Cumberland Avenue between the Jessie Harris Building and Hoskins Library.
