SAS Res Opens June 3, Passes Required


The St. Andrew’s-Sewanee School campus is home to a beautiful man-made lake created decades ago by the monks and students of St. Andrew’s School. The “Res,” as it is called, is restricted to school use during most of the year. However, for a portion of the summer (this year June 3 through July 30) members of the extended SAS community may use the Res if they have a permit.

To be eligible to apply for and purchase a Res pass and parking permit, community members must have an SAS sponsor employed by the school (signature will be required) and be at least 18 years old. Applications are available at <> and must be submitted at the SAS Administrative Offices in Langford Hall between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday–Friday. Season permits are $75. A one weekend permit may be purchased for $25. SAS alumni and current parents may purchase a season permit for $25. The Res may not be used by permit holders until Monday, June 3.

Group rates for those not affiliated with SAS or the University of the South will be $150 per half-day for up to 25 individuals. Groups must provide lifeguards and proof of insurance. To apply for group use, contact Andrea Booher, <>.
