Senior-level campus administrators may be eligible for a short-term housing allowance upon initial appointment. Allowances for faculty, staff and students are not permissible. Short term University owned housing provisions may be made for faculty and staff when necessary for the performance of job duties.

Pre-approval is required for Knoxville and UTSI faculty and staff from the Chief Business Officer (CBO), or designee, who in turn will seek prior approval from the UT System Chief Financial Officer (CFO). Steps to follow:
- The department must request prior approval prior to making the offer.
- Upon approval by the CBO and CFO, the signed offer letter and pre-approval documentation
should be attached to the electronic T-5 in Zap entry which will route to the Treasurer’s Office for processing.
This should not be submitted to the Treasurer’s Office more than 60 days prior to the employees start date according to policy.
Questions regarding the supplemental policy should be directed to the Office of the Sr. Vice Chancellor for Finance and Administration 865-974-4204.
