"Ecce Quam Bonum Et Quam Iucundum Habitare Fratres In Unum." or "Behold How Good and Joyful a Thing it is for Kindred to Dwell Together in Unity." This motto is the principle upon which Residential Life at Sewanee is built.

Residence Halls

Students may choose to live in one of the 19 residence halls on campus; there are 15 co-ed halls, two men’s halls, and two women’s halls. Amenities vary by hall, though all provide a laundry room and common rooms for studying purposes.

Theme Houses

The Dean of Students Office accepts proposals from the student body to create special interest houses that focus on a specific theme each year. The theme should contribute to the broader educational and social growth of the community.
