Summer Housing Information

Gorgas Dormitory will be available for housing during the summer of 2014 for University students who are full-time employees of The University of the South.  Housing will be approved once proof of full-time employment is provided by the offices of Human Resources or Career and Leadership Development.  We will check each applicant’s name with those offices until the date of April 30; after that no more applications will be accepted.

WHO?  Sewanee students who have been officially awarded full-time summer employment or internships.  Gorgas is also available for international students who need campus housing during the dates of May 12-July 26.

WHERE?  Gorgas Dormitory.  Single and double accommodations will be available.  Single room assignments will be limited and based on availability.

WHEN?  Beginning at 5PM on Monday, May 12.   Please do not come earlier as the custodians need time to prepare the rooms after the noon deadline for moving out on that day.  Gorgas will close at noon on Saturday, July 26.  

RENT?  $450.00 plus tax = $491.63 for a single; $ 225.00 plus tax = $245.82 for a double.   Rent will not be reduced for those who arrive after May 12 or leave before July 26.  Room keys will be distributed after rent is paid.  If you arrive after May 12, contact the Conference Services office at 598-1337 to arrange a time for payment and key pick-up.  The rent will cover room, utilities, phone with voice mail, and the use of the kitchen with what is available for cooking.

HOW?  Interested students who qualify should fill out the Summer Housing Application online.  Please apply after you have received and returned your letter of employment for a full-time position with the University for the summer.  The deadline for turning this in is Wednesday, April 30.

YOU WILL BE ASKED TO SIGN A CONTRACT AND A ROOM CONDITION FORM UPON ARRIVAL.  There will be three proctors assigned to the dormitory and you will be expected to follow the same policies and rules which are in place during the academic year.  

STUDENT POST OFFICE?  Contact the staff at the Student Post Office to arrange for a box.  There will be a small fee.
