Education has never been limited to the classroom. The idea of communal living at university has its roots in the Oxford-Cambridge model in England. Faculty members (fellows) lived with students, taught them, and helped them transform into contributors to their society, and vice versa.
At Vanderbilt, Warren and Moore colleges follow in this tradition, connecting upper-class students, residential faculty, graduate fellows, undergraduate resident advisers, experienced staff, others throughout the university, and visitors from across the local, national, and global communities. Together, they create communities and collaborations for discovery and learning, with events such as dinners with faculty, musical performances, community service, and late-night conversations.
Warren College and Moore College are the latest of Vanderbilt's residential options. Once students enter Warren or Moore college in their sophomore year, they can remain in the same college as juniors and seniors. This residential option conveys the ambience of a small college community, while still affording students an education at a world-class research university with a wide variety of undergraduate academic programs.
On these pages you will find more information about the residential colleges and their component halls, the personnel of Warren and Moore colleges, programs supported by College Halls (and guidance on student-driven programming), facilities and living arrangements, the people behind the names (Warren, Moore, Rice, Smith, Delbruck, Elliston, Kissam), and the history of College Halls in the larger Vanderbilt living and learning landscape.
