UT Now Offering Twelve-Month Housing Option Contracts for Fall 2014

In an effort to increase enrollment and the use of campus facilities during the summer, UT is now offering a twelve-month housing program for contracts that begin this fall. This new option is the result of recommendations from the Summer Term Task Force. Making the summer term a more viable option for students helps improve the university’s four-year graduation rate and continues to push the university to its goal of becoming a Top 25 public research university. Housing will be available in Laurel Hall, an apartment-style residence hall located north of the main campus.
