Tuckaway Hall Exterior view


Built in 1929, Tuckaway Hall was Sewanee's first use of fieldstone architecture in its buildings. From 1929 until the fall of 2008, the residence hall housed 60 men from all four classes; it is now co-ed. This centrally located residence hall serves as home to several of Sewanee's six learning communities.
