University of Tennessee in Knoxville working to fix problems caused by freeze

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — With spring semester having begun on Wednesday, employees at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, have been working around the clock to fix problems caused by the recent freeze.

According to the university, the cold has caused both plumbing and heating system problems in academic buildings, dormitories, fraternities and sororities, and sports facilities.

UT Housing has offered temporary rooms to the residents of Sigma Alpha Epsilon and Alpha Tau Omega fraternities, which experienced electrical problems associated with the cold weather.

The freezing temperatures also burst pipes at Regal Soccer Stadium, Sherri Parker Lee Stadium and Neyland Stadium, where the worst damage appears to be to the carpet.

Dave Irvin is associate vice chancellor for facilities services. He said it is still too early to estimate the overall damage caused by the cold.
