Shakerag participants will be residing in rooms in Woods, Watts, Colmore, Card, Harvey, and Warner Houses on the St. Andrew's-Sewanee campus. All residences are air conditioned and have shared bathrooms. Woods, Watts, Colmore, and Card have six bedrooms in each House, with twin beds, dressers, and closets in each room. Warner House has 10 bedrooms on each floor, and Harvey House has six bedrooms on each floor, all of which are similar to those in the other Houses. In each residence there is a shared bathroom with three private showers, three private toilets, and a shared sink area, in addition to a common area with a microwave and a television. All of our residences and studios are smoke-free, and most residences are wheel-chair accessible. Bedding (sheets, pillows, and blankets), lamps, and fans are available to rent each week.
Our accommodations at Shakerag Workshops are simple and modest. Although participants spend the great majority of their time in the studios, there are many lovely areas on campus for sitting, talking, and relaxing with new-found friends. The library, the courtyard outside the dining hall, the dormitory porches, the lounge in the studio area, and the raft at the lake are all comfortable places to gather. We encourage you to enjoy something different in choosing your housing for Shakerag Workshops: returning to communal living for a week has proved to be a positive experience for our participants in the past. Our residences, studios, and dining facility are all within easy walking distance of one another. Imagine parking your car upon your arrival, and not having to drive for the entire week! Though you are welcome to commute to our studios from the motels located 5 miles down the road, you might enjoy the freedom and ease that living on our campus allows, even with the shared bathroom facilities which are different from those we normally use.
