University Housing is in the midst of a multi-phase housing development plan to provide a variety of housing options to incoming UT students. By 2019, we will welcome seven new residential halls to the University Housing family. New construction will take place in three major phases, with each phase contributing to the overall transformation of the campus community.
Phase 1: Fred D. Brown Jr. Residence Hall
Fred D. Brown Jr. Residence Hall, which opened in 2014, was the inaugural project in the overall University Housing redevelopment plan. Our first new hall in more than forty years features two suite styles, abundant community space, an Internet lounge on each floor, and two eateries.
Phase 2: Stokely Hall
Stokely Hall opened in Spring of 2017, housing more than 700 residents in single and shared bedrooms with shared living spaces. This new hall features a dining facility and is open to both male and female students. The project accompanies other campus initiatives, including a 1,000-space parking garage and the expansion of Haslam field.
Phase 3: West Campus Redevelopment
The third and largest phase will completely transform the west end of the UT campus. New residence halls will integrate dining, study areas, and Living & Learning Community space into a village-style, student-focused community.
