Welcome to the Anchor Link Resources Website!

Whether you are new to using the system or want to gain a greater understanding of how Anchor Link can benefit you or your organization, this site can help answer your questions.

Anchor Link is Vanderbilt’s student involvement platform that helps students become connected on campus and manage their experiences outside the classroom. Anchor Link serves as the central calendar for student life and has groups for every registered student organization and residence hall on campus, as well as a variety of university departments, programs, and resources.

Anchor Link has robust functionality for managing student organizations including recruiting new members, publicizing events and news, tracking attendance, maintaining organization records, conducting elections or polls, and communicating with members.

The public Anchor Link site is accessible to anyone, including those outside of Vanderbilt. However, every student, faculty, and staff member may log in with their VUnet ID and password for a more robust campus user view as well as customized content for each individual user based on their involvement and interests.
