We can’t wait to host you for a fun and memorable Family Weekend celebration on Vanderbilt’s campus, Oct. 1-3, 2021. This will be a wonderful opportunity to be together, in person, with your Commodore community.

Download the new Vanderbilt Campus Guidebook smartphone app. It’s your one-stop-shop for everything Family Weekend! Be sure to “allow notifications” to receive information and reminders during the weekend.



In an abundance of caution amid the rising number of COVID-19 cases and to comply with Vanderbilt’s current health and safety protocols, we will be limiting our Family Weekend schedule to several outdoor anchor events. Many information sessions will instead be held virtually at a later date. View the weekend schedule and explore our recommendations for outdoor places to visit in Nashville during your free time.

We want to provide you with an exciting and safe as possible campus experience. Therefore all Family Weekend visitors—whether vaccinated or unvaccinated—will be required to mask, even while outdoors, during any Vanderbilt-sponsored on-campus or off-campus event. For up-to-date information, visit our Health and Safety Protocols website.

Please be aware as you make travel plans that health and safety conditions may change by October.

*The details of Family Weekend are subject to change at any time based on Vanderbilt University’s current Health and Safety Protocols. This includes event locations (indoor or outdoor), food and beverage offerings, masking requirements, and other physical distancing measures as required for the health and safety of the university community.
