March 19, 2020 CANCELLED _ Studio Move-Out Procedure in Response to Coronavirus

NOTE: This procedure is no longer in effect. Watch for updates.

Students, thank you for your positivity and patience as we all work to adjust to changes.

Following direction from UT leaders, we are working to eliminate the spread of COVID-19 by controlling the number of people in the A+A at one time.  For the health of staff, faculty and other students, as well as those you come into contact with later, it’s critical that you follow this procedure to remove your items from studios in the A+A for the remainder of the spring 2020 semester.

Procedure for Removing Personal Belongings from A+A Studios

  1. Between 9 a.m.-5 p.m., March 19-March 27, call 865-974-3232 or 865-974-9786 to schedule your time to gather your personal belongings in the Art + Architecture Building. We are trying to have all belongings removed by April 10, if possible.
  2. Social distancing will be observed, and scheduled number of people in the building must be observed.
  3. Priority is given to students moving out of residence halls and Greek housing and to students who live out of the area.
  4. The staff member who will help you on the phone will ask for the following:
    1. Name
    2. Where you are calling from
    3. If you have a reservation for campus move-out
    4. Date and time you are requesting for A+A move-out
    5. Studio floor
    6. Cell number
    7. Email address
    8. Studio professor
    9. Course name and number
  5. Date and time will be scheduled on the phone, but your date and time will not be confirmed until you receive an e-mail from us.
  6. An e-mail with procedures and times will be sent to you very soon after the phone call. Look for and print this e-mail or keep it handy on your phone.
  7. The e-mailed procedure will tell you how to enter the building, exit the building, use the elevator and observe social distancing protocols. That procedure also is below.
  8. Bring your VolCard to access the building.

If you have problems or questions or need to reschedule, please call 865-974-3232 or 865-974-9786, between 9 a.m.-5 p.m., M-F.
