Tower IV

Carmichael Towers West is a fourteen-floor, air-conditioned residence hall complex which opened in 1970. Towers West is comprised of two separate high-rise buildings, Tower III and Tower IV. The lower two floors of each tower contain study areas, lounges, recreation rooms, a 24-hour information desk and meeting rooms. The complex has a laundry facility and a Food Court conveniently located on the first floor.

Residents live on floors 3-14 in Towers III and IV. The coed residential floors are built in the shape of a square and are composed of four suites per floor, each housing six residents of the same gender. The suites contain two single bedrooms (rooms B&D), two doubles (rooms C&E), a private bathroom, a large storage closet and a kitchen\common lounge area. In the common area, there is one love seat, one lounge chair, a dining table with four chairs, one coffee table, two end tables, and complete kitchen facilities (refrigerator, sink, cabinets, stove and oven). Carmichael Towers West houses 576 upperclass men and women in suites. Every second floor has a resident adviser.

The Carmichael Towers are named for Oliver Cromwell Carmichael, who was Vanderbilt’s third Chancellor.
