The Student Recreation Center has become the Vanderbilt Recreation and Wellness Center (VRWC). The new name reflects the combining of Recreation and Wellness that serves our entire community. This combination and focus is consistent with the latest trends within Higher Education and, with our state of the art new facility, positions Vanderbilt as a national leader in this area.

As we enter storm and inclement weather season, we would like to remind our patrons of our inclement weather policies and procedures. Once a lifeguard sees lightning and/or hears thunder, the pool is cleared immediately. Everyone must be completely out of the water and away from the glass windows. The pool is to remain clear until there is no longer a threat of imminent danger. Typically this closing will last a minimum of 30 minutes dependent on current weather conditions. The Facility Supervisor will have a weather radar pulled up to assist and provide warnings as necessary.
Tornado Watch – Although the actual conditions in the area may not be presently threatening, there is a strong chance of dangerous winds, maybe a tornado. When the facility supervisor or a radio announcement has been made, the lifeguard is prepared to clear the pool if necessary.
Tornado Warning- If a tornado warning has been issued, the aquatic staff immediately instructs all patrons to clear the pool and seek the designated shelter areas immediately. Shelter areas are located in the lower corridors (hallway to men’s and women’s locker rooms.) Patrons may leave the building if they choose, but are strongly advised to seek immediate shelter within the Vanderbilt Recreation and Wellness Center.
