Classes meet in state-of-the-art classrooms in Gailor Hall. Gailor was renovated in 2005 to house the English, Classics, and modern language departments; The Sewanee Review, the Sewanee Writers' Conference, and the School of Letters. Gailor Auditorium is the venue for the summer's guest reading program and films and the Atrium is often the site of after-event receptions.
Students who request campus housing stay in Humphreys Hall, the newest and nicest of Sewanee’s dorms. Completed in 2003, it consists of comfortable, air-conditioned suites. They take their meals in McClurg Dining Hall, completed in 2000. Students have access to the Robert Dobbs Fowler Sport and Fitness Center with exercise rooms, indoor track, indoor tennis courts and indoor pool. The Sewanee Union Theater shows contemporary movies on the weekend.
Sewanee’s Jessie Ball duPont Library houses 713,000 print volumes, along with more than 318,000 microforms and over 20,000 records, tapes, CDs, videocassettes and DVDs. Because of the long-standing strength of the English department and allied programs such as The Sewanee Review and The Sewanee Writers' Conference, its holdings in literature and literary scholarship are especially strong. Those resources are supplemented by cooperative agreements with other libraries, including one which gives Sewanee students borrowing privileges at the Jean and Alexander Heard Library at Vanderbilt University, an hour and a half away in Nashville. The duPont library also has computer labs and printers, equipped to accommodate Mac or PC users.
Surrounding all this, of course, is the 13,000 acre domain, riddled with caves streams, ornamented by waterfalls and scenic overlooks, and criss-crossed by miles of hiking trails.
