The Vanderbilt University Police Department along with their local partners will be stationed around campus to help direct traffic during the three days of Commencement. While on campus, please look for volunteers in bright gold polo shirts or the large “You Are Here” maps to help direct you to the location of your event. We encourage you to print off any maps you may need ahead of time. Below you will find a variety of maps to help guide you to all the great events on campus during Commencement.
