What You Need to Know about Construction during Finals and Commencement
The university continuously strives to balance the project schedule and budget with the student and faculty experience and appreciate the patience, understanding and cooperation of those living and learning in the neighborhood during this time.
While construction continues in the Peabody neighborhood, specifically along Magnolia Circle and at the Home Economics and Mayborn site, during finals week, starting April 23, construction noise will not begin until 8 a.m. and will end at 3 p.m.
All Peabody final exams have been scheduled in Wyatt, Sony, or in the classrooms on the south side of Hobbs, which are fartherest away from the other construction activity that is ongoing. These areas are less impacted by noise. No exams are scheduled in Payne Hall or One Magnolia Circle.
Please use the hotline email, Constr_alerts@Vanderbilt.edu and phone number, (615)-343-9675, if you believe noise or activity is outside of the temporary limits put into place.
