Warren and Moore colleges

The newest living options are Warren and Moore colleges, which open in August 2014. The first in Vanderbilt’s College Halls project, Warren and Moore Colleges are designed around the idea of an “engaged community” of sophomores, juniors, and seniors, who live with resident faculty directors and graduate Fellows. Together they generate the kinds of personal experiences, social networks and communities of learning that shape future lives.

The Martha Rivers Ingram Commons

All first-year students live on The Martha Rivers Ingram Commons. Grouped around 10 Houses, each mentored by a residential faculty head of house, the Commons brings together a first-year class from all four undergraduate schools and creates a living learning community through a rich diversity of individual backgrounds, perspectives and academic interests.

Living Learning Communities

Vanderbilt’s living learning communities  provide opportunities for students with similar educational interests to live together in residence halls offering structured learning environments organized around international interests, leadership, project development, the arts and more.

Traditional Residence Halls

Some students prefer traditional residence hall living in the singles and doubles of Branscomb Quadrangle, the Alumni Lawn Halls of Vanderbilt/Barnard, Cole and Tolman, or Blakemore House near Vanderbilt Stadium.


Other students opt for the independence of apartment-style suites in the Carmichael Towers or the smaller apartments of Morgan/Lewis or the Chaffins.
