By the fall of 2014, UT will have its first new residence hall in forty years. The new residence hall, on Andy Holt Avenue at the corner of Melrose Avenue, will house 700 undergraduate men and women in two-person suites and four-person super suites. The suites are double occupancy rooms with a shared bathroom. The super suites are arranged similarly, but connect to a common living room and shared bathroom.
