Recreation & Wellness
Does the Vanderbilt Recreation and Wellness Center provide gender inclusive facilities (i.e. locker rooms)?
There are single use, lockable, “family locker rooms” at end of 1st floor to your right. This “family locker room” is an individual private locker room for folks with children, those who do not identify or feel comfortable with men or women’s specific locker rooms, and folks who need any other accommodations.
Are fitness classes open to students, faculty, and staff of all gender identities and expressions?
The recreation and wellness center offers several fitness and educational classes and programs. Some of these programs may be specifically geared toward men and/or women (usually noted within the title or description of the class), but the classes are not restrictive to women only or men only.
Does Vanderbilt Intramural policies include gender identity and expression?
The Equal Opportunity Statement in intramural handbook shown below does not include gender identity or gender expression:
“In compliance with federal law, including the provisions of Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1992, Sections 503 and 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, Vanderbilt University does not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, religion, color, administration of educational policies, programs, or activities; its admissions policies; scholarship and loan programs, athletic or other University-administered programs, or employment.
