Maximum Use

      For Fall Semester 2011, United Tribes continues the trend of healthy, sustainable growth underway for the last several years. This is the second time in recent history that UTTC has reached maximum use of campus lodging facilities. A housing taskforce examined on-campus facilities and re-configured several locations to house additional students. All campus lodging facilities are in use, both for single students and families. Some dorm rooms have been adapted for double occupancy to accommodate new arrivals.
