Beginning in the 2019–20 academic year, UT will establish a pilot program to assess and evaluate the feasibility of access to university housing by FUTURE program students. Currently FUTURE is a nonresidential vocational certificate program for young adults with developmental and intellectual disability.

University Housing will partner with Student Disability Services to develop and offer a housing application process for FUTURE program participants.

The FUTURE program is a comprehensive program sponsored by the College of Education, Health and Human Sciences that helps young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities make a successful transition from high school to adult life. Upon successful completion of the program, students receive a vocational certificate.
