Housing

The Center for International Education cannot make housing arrangements for international students or scholars. In the case of scholars, we hope that the host department can assist with these arrangements. However,  CIE has prepared the following information to assist international students and scholars in finding appropriate housing:

On-campus Housing

NOTE: On-campus housing is only available for undergraduate and graduate students. All freshman undergraduate students must live on campus. International Students have the option to live in UT housing. However, admission to the university does not guarantee housing in the residence halls. Once students are admitted to the university, they will receive a housing contract by e-mail. Students who choose to live on campus must read the contract carefully. For more information and instructions on how to apply, visit the University Housing Website.

Off-campus Housing

General information regarding off-campus housing can be found at Off-Campus Housing UTK

Find more options in the classifieds ads for housing in the Daily Beacon (UT’s student newspaper).

Other housing options can be found on Craiglist (Knoxville)

Other tips to find housing:

  • Once in Knoxville, students and scholars can also search the University Center bulletin board (located near the Post Office) and the International House public bulletin board (located on the lower level) where lease and sublease ads are posted. These boards are not available online.
  • Another easy way to find an apartment is to simply walk or drive around the area and look for “apartment for rent” signs. The signs will usually have a contact phone number to find more information about the property for rent.
