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, a soaring neo-Gothic space with cathedral acoustics. St. Luke’s Chapel, our 125-seat recital hall, is often used as a venue for master classes and small recital performances.

Students are housed in university dormitories and arranged by age and gender. Dorms are supervised by qualified adults and assisted by college student proctors. The University’s campus dining facility, McClurg Dining Hall, serves meals three times daily.
