  • Students living in Carmichael Towers 1 and 2 should enter onto 24th Avenue from West End Avenue and turn left into the parking lot next to the towers for move out. A loop around the parking lot has been created to allow students and their families to easily load their vehicles and exit via 24th Avenue to West End Neighborhood.
  • Students may also use the E. Bronson Ingram roundabout for vehicular traffic.

Winter Break Activity

  • Over winter break construction hours will be extended from 6 a.m. until late evening so that the team can complete as much work as possible while students, faculty and staff are away from campus.
  • Normal Construction hours of 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays will resume on Sunday, Jan. 5.

The Nicholas S. Zeppos College

The university announced that Residential College A will be named the Nicholas S. Zeppos College to honor Chancellor Emeritus Zeppos.  Read the full article here.

Upcoming Events & Feedback

  • Submit feedback: The Campus Planning & Construction department launched a construction feedback form. The form is a simple way to share feedback if you believe noise or construction activities are happening outside of the working hours put in place or if you believe there is a non-emergency issue. The hotline email Constr_alerts@Vanderbilt.edu and phone line (615) 343-9675 are also available.

  • The Facilities Department is hosting a series of town hall meetings during the 2019–20 academic year. These meetings are an opportunity for the Vanderbilt community to voice their concerns, ask questions and learn about more about the West End Neighborhood project. The next town hall meeting is on Thursday, March 5, from 5 to 6 p.m. in the Carmichael Towers East lounge.
  • Follow @FacilitiesVU on Instagram and Twitter for up-to-date traffic routes, utility outages and information on the West End Neighborhood project.
