Formerly the home of the Sewanee Inn, Elliott Hall offers housing to 55 men from all classes in the College. Built in 1922, Elliott still bears a strong resemblance to the Inn. Located on University Avenue, Elliott is a short distance from the University Bookstore.

The old ballroom, located on the first floor of the west wing, was converted into first-year student doubles, complete with lofts. The east wing, which served as the rooms of the Inn, has been converted into singles and doubles, some arranged as suites, some sharing a hall bathroom. These rooms are very popular among upperclassmen. Most rooms are carpeted and all windows are furnished with blinds.
