Living in Sewanee

Where you will find a little something for everyone.

Living in a residential setting has a profound impact on formation. Not only does it take you out of your comfort zone, but it places you in a community with which you engage every day. A community where students come from from more than 100 dioceses, from around the globe, and from all walks of life. Sometimes beliefs and ideals are challenged, and we think that's a good thing. Can you think of a better way to learn how to live with these challenges than in a residential setting? A way that will prepare you for service to the whole Church? We can't.

It's not just the students and their companions and/or families that make up the community—the faculty and staff are also just as engaged in this community. And then there's the College of Arts and Sciences with more than 1,700 undergraduates and even more faculty and staff. Opportunities to participate with the College are plentiful and a unique advantage for an Episcopal Seminary. Seminary students lead Bible study groups for college students, serve in the University's All Saints' Chapel, and engage in Catechumenate classes year-round.

Rental housing options in Sewanee are as wide-ranging as the ministry options and run the gamut from single family homes large enough to hold seven, to duplexes and townhouses, to the EQB community houses for single students. It's just a matter of which one is the best fit for you. And of course, your pets are also welcome on the Mountain.

Recreation focuses on the outdoors and Sewanee has that in abundance. On or near the Domain you will find unlimited hiking trails, lakes for canoeing and kayaking, even a resovoir for swimming and picnicking. The Fowler Center offers an indoor gym, tennis courts, and a variety of classes.

The Office of Environmental Stewardship and Sustainability serves as a University resource to shepherd awareness about stewardship and sustainability, as well as catalyzing action throughout the campus, the Domain and the community.
