Important summer information
  • View a list of action items to be completed before Move-In Day
  • View a list of what you and your student will receive from Vanderbilt in the coming months

All first-year students live in our residential college The Martha Rivers Ingram Commons. We know they will make intellectual, professional, and personal connections right from the start of their collegiate journey. To learn more about The Commons visit their website today. When Move-In Day details become available, we’ll share them in our Commodore Connection emails and on our site.

A vital source of information is The Road to Vanderbilt and it is now available online. A physical copy will be mailed to domestic addresses in early May.


Dean Gresalfi of The Ingram Commons is hosting two webinars this summer to get you and your student ready for Move-In Day. Please use the links below to register and view the webinars.
