Student Services

Sewanee Summer Music Festival


All classrooms, rehearsal rooms, and teaching studios are centrally located in buildings on the campus of the University of the South. Most concerts are held in the 1,000-seat auditorium at Guerry Hall. Outdoor concerts are held in a charming courtyard known as Guerry Garth. The annual Brass Concert and large choral-orchestral works are presented in All Saints’ Chapel, an imposing neo-Gothic space with cathedral acoustics. St. Luke’s Chapel, our 125-seat recital hall, is an ideal venue for master classes and small recital performances.

Housing, Meals, and Health Service

Students are housed in university dormitories, arranged by age and gender, are supervised by qualified adults, and assisted by college student proctors. Meals are served three times daily in the University’s splendid facility, McClurg Dining Hall.

Limited health services are available to SSMF students. University Health Services offers limited hours for non-emergencies, while Emerald-Hodgson Hospital, on campus, provides emergency and critical care services. All students must be covered by health insurance.
