Built in 1929, Tuckaway Hall marked Sewanee's first use of fieldstone architecture in its buildings. Tuckaway is a co-ed residence hall and is located on Tennessee Avenue, just a short walk from the newly constructed Wellness Commons.


Double and single rooms are situated in three main sections divided by multi-level staircases to create five small floors. Some rooms share hall baths and some share suite baths. All floors are carpeted and windows are furnished with blinds. Average room & window dimensions: Each room and window is unique in shape and size. To determine specific room and window dimensions for each room, please view the below document.


The first floor common room is connected to the covered front porch and has a large stone fireplace. It is known as "the fishbowl" because of its three sets of glass French doors. The front porch has rocking chairs for residents to relax in. The lower common room, opening into a full kitchen, is used by residents for sharing meals with friends, for watching TV or movies, and for holding meetings. Tuckaway Hall is air-conditioned.
