For the first time at the University of Tennessee, sororities will be allowed to build stand-alone residential chapter houses in what will be called a sorority village. The sorority village will be located at the southeast corner of Neyland Drive and Cumberland Avenue across from the University’s Visitor Center. The facilities will be funded by each chapter’s sorority fundraising efforts. Each sorority has turned in a pro forma to the university. Each group is responsible for their own house design; each conforming to architectural guidelines set forth by the University.
