How to Get Here

There are several options for travel to Sewanee. We are accessible from several major airports, and are also an easy drive from Nashville, Atlanta, Birmingham, and Knoxville. 


Please note: Sewanee is in the Central Time Zone.

  • Nashville International Airport (BNA) is approximately 1.5 hours away (90 miles)
  • Chattanooga Airport (CHA) is approximately 50 mins away (60 miles), but is in the Eastern Time Zone. Please take this into account when you are making your arrangements. 

There are shuttle options from the Nashville airport, as well as car rentals available in both Nashville and Chattanooga. We will also be organizing a Google Sheet for attendees who would like to arrange carpooling options from the airport.
