Health & Safety at Vanderbilt

Vanderbilt University deeply values its neighbors, community partners, and visitors that make our community so vibrant. However, as part of our comprehensive efforts to limit the spread of COVID-19 at Vanderbilt, throughout the city of Nashville and beyond as much as possible, we have made the difficult decision to limit the presence of visitors on campus for the summer of 2021 semester. This includes hosting events for visitors and Nashville community members on campus this semester.


The health and safety of the university community are foundational to our efforts in responding to COVID-19. VU’s protocols with respect to “gatherings” prioritize core mission activities central to the university’s mission. “Gatherings” must be conducted in accordance with VU-established guidelines, and some “gatherings” must be approved.


To read on about Gathering Guidelines, visit the Vanderbilt Return to Campus Plan website.
