Yea, Sewanee's Right!

We are thrilled that you will be joining our community.

Now that you are enrolled you will need to make arrangements for housing. Students at the School of Theology have two options for housing: 

Those interested in a rental housing assignment from the university will need to contact the office of rental housing. The application and additional housing information can be found here. Please do reach out to them as soon as possible. All rental housing questions should be directed to the office of rental housing. 

Those interested in private housing options (private rentals, buying, building) should contact the office of community leasing here

You will also need to be in touch with Connie Patton, director of operations and financial aid, to finalize your financial aid package or to notify her of any changes with your finances. Connie may be reached at or 931.598.1340.
