To help students move into their residence halls this week for the 2017-18 academic year, traffic will be redirected temporarily from some parking lots and roads on Main Campus.

The first students to move onto campus starting Tuesday, Aug. 22, will be those who live in Honors Academic Village. UT’s residence halls will welcome students Thursday, Aug. 24, through Saturday, Aug. 26.

“We ask our UT community to be patient and cautious of pedestrians crossing the roads as students and their families get their belongings from their vehicles into the residence halls,” said Sherri Kaspar, manager for public safety services.

Students moving into Honors Academic Village will enter campus from the west entrance on Secor Road and take West Rocket Drive to the building. The northern most row of spaces of Lot 13 and Honors Drive will be reserved for move-in traffic Tuesday and Wednesday, Aug. 22 and 23. Employees are asked to use Campus Road to access Lots 13 and 14, as well as the West Parking Garage.

Thursday through Saturday, Aug. 24-26, the first two rows of Lot 26 will be reserved for move-in traffic to Academic House and International House, and a portion of Lot 27B will be dedicated for Ottawa House East move in.

On Friday and Saturday, Aug. 25-26, Lot 8 will be reserved for those moving into Carter Hall, and Lot 27A will be dedicated to Ottawa House West move in.
