We are continuing on-campus, in-person classes for the fall 2021 semester.
The health and safety of our Vanderbilt community are our highest priority. Plans for the university were developed in close consultation with experts at Vanderbilt University Medical Center and our School of Nursing as well as national, state and local public health officials. The success of this approach requires a joint effort from every member of our community as we work together as One Vanderbilt.
To keep the VU community as safe as possible and help ensure the ability to continue to conduct in-person teaching and learning, all new and returning students will be required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 for the 2021–22 academic year. Additionally, the university will require all Vanderbilt University-employed faculty, staff and postdoctoral fellows to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 for the 2021–22 academic school year.
Questions? Call the Return to Campus Helpline at 615-322-4357. This line is for new and returning students and their families and is staffed from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. CDT Monday through Friday.
If you have a COVID-19 concern, report it by calling the Public Health Ambassadore Hotline at 615-343-1352.
