Housing Assignment Guidelines

  1. First priority is to 3rd year UT students enrolled in Clerkship rotations
  2. Second priority is to 4th year UT students enrolled in Required rotations (Geri/Palli and Capstone)
  3. Third priority is to all other 3rd and 4th year UT students enrolled in electives or JIs.

Since we frequently have more than 28 students, it helps if students from the Chattanooga area stay with friends or family to maximize available housing. 

*UT Students who intend to complete most of their Clerkship and Elective rotations in Chattanooga should obtain their own housing at their expense. 

*If students have friends or family in the Chattanooga area, we expect them to utilize this option.  This will help to provide student housing for those who do not have any other option.

*We do not begin reviewing the student housing roster until thirty (30) days prior to the beginning of the rotation.  If we see any sign of housing limitations, we will notify you as soon as possible.  You will receive a "Welcome" email approximately 7-10 days prior to the beginning of the rotation, which will include detailed check-in and Orientation instructions.
