Housing Options During Your Sabbatical at SAT
Sabbatical at SAT provides a variety of housing options in the Bay Area. Participants are encouraged to choose the living environment that best suits their needs.
Convenient housing at SAT is available at St. Albert Priory, the home of SAT. Surrounded by lovely grounds, the Priory is conveniently located two blocks from BART, the transit system connecting the East Bay with San Francisco. Single, furnished bedrooms with basins are available for women and men on separate floors. Bathroom and shower facilities are shared in common on each floor of the residence. Residents enjoy the use of a spacious lounge and kitchenette. A dining room for residents offers full food service.
SAT has a limited number of furnished apartments available. Rent for an apartment varies, usually between $600 and $900 per month. Leases are for six or twelve months.
Rooms in rectories with no pastoral obligations are available for $700 - $900 monthly. Those living in a rectory are responsible for their own food and cooking.
For those choosing to live at St. Albert's, the Priory provides bedspreads, towels, and blankets as well as the free use of washing machines and dryers. Phones are also available in each of the rooms, but participants are responsible for contracting and paying for the specific phone connection service they desire. Some computers are available for use in common areas. Participants, however, are encouraged to bring their own laptop computers if they have them. Free wi-fi and access to Skype is available to residents of St. Albert's. Free parking is available on the grounds.
The Director of Admissions works with participants individually to assist them in locating and arranging for the housing situation that will be most supportive of renewal and life-giving for them.
