UTC eyes state office building location for dorm

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) -- University of Tennessee-Chattanooga officials see the lot where a state office building sits as a solution to dormitory overcrowding.

The state plans to move workers out of the Chattanooga State Office Building, which is near the UTC campus.

The university has a couple of hundred students living at the Chattanooga Choo Choo hotel because the dorms are full.

Meeting with reporters and editors of the Chattanooga Times Free Press, UTC Chancellor Dr. Steve Angle said the university hopes to get the seven-story office building, demolish it and build a 600-student residence hall on the lot.
