Yea, Sewanee's Right!

We are thrilled that you will be joining our community. Here are some next step items for your attention.


If you've not already taken the admissions survey, please take a few moments to fill it out. Your feedback is greatly appreciated.


In the coming days, you'll be receiving a notification from Sandra Brock, coordinator of academic affairs, that an address has been created for your student account. This will be the official means of communication with the university so you will want to set that up as soon as possible. 

It will be important for you to begin regularly checking your Sewanee email account.


Once your email address is active 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. Amanda Baily will be your point of contact for university housing and Walker or Stephanie will put you in touch with her to begin this process shortly. University housing is allocated on a first come / first serve basis, so it is important for you to contact Amanda as soon as possible. All rental housing questions should be directed to Amanda at 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. 


Now that you have officially deposited we’ll be turning you over to The Rev. Dr. Deborah Jackson, associate dean for community life. Dean Jackson will be the one coordinating your arrival and orientation to seminary life. Questions you might have prior to, or about, your coming to Sewanee can be directed to her at or 931.598.1655. You will begin to hear from her regularly sometime around mid-May, 2021.  


We look forward to welcoming you to the Domain soon. Ecce quam bonum!
