Summer Academic Intern Housing Program

For the health and safety of all, Vanderbilt University has not yet determined if we will sponsor the Academic Intern Housing Program for the Summer of 2021. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.

These are unprecedented times and we appreciate your understanding.

Please email for more information.

Historically, the Vanderbilt University Office of Conferences offers a unique 10-week summer housing program for Academic Interns and Researchers from Memorial Day through the first of August for qualified college students. Eligible individuals must be enrolled in a degree-seeking program and actively involved in summer research or academic internship program in the Nashville area. Eligible interns do not need to be a Vanderbilt student to enroll in the Summer Academic Intern Housing Program. Click the link below for a YouTube video tour of Warren & Moore College Halls at

Participants in this program must be at least 18 years of age or older and must stay for at least a twenty-one day period.

We offer our participants first-rate accommodations at competitive prices! Participants in our Summer Academic Intern Housing Program will be housed in our new Residential College Hall System located on the main campus.

The newest Residential College Hall opened for occupancy in the Fall of 2018. E. Bronson Ingram (EBI) College provides housing for 340 interns. Opened in August 2014, Warren and Moore College Halls provide housing for 660 interns. These iconic, state-of-the-art living accommodations, mirror the historic gothic-style architecture positioned throughout Vanderbilt’s beautiful campus.  These vibrant residential college halls include a limited amount of traditional shared double rooms and single rooms as well as four, and five-person single rooms in shared suites. Suite size and room availability differ throughout the residence hall. Therefore, all room assignments will be implemented on a first-come, first-served basis to those who register online and pay the $250.00 deposit.

PLEASE NOTE: Room assignments will be completed through the Office of Conferences. All group affiliated participants and individual roommate requests will be implemented based on one’s matriculation date as well as the deposit payment. Please let us know as soon as possible if any interns have special needs accommodations.

We are currently offering a limited amount of traditional shared double rooms, traditional single rooms as well as single rooms in a shared four or five-person suite.

All rooms are clean, furnished and air-conditioned. All modern amenities and utilities are included in the daily rate: a bedroom in a completely furnished bedroom, a small kitchenette or community kitchen in each building, laundry facilities on-site ($1.50 per load), study space, cable TV hook-up connection, and high-speed wireless internet access.

We are currently offering traditional double rooms and traditional single rooms (no kitchenette). Communal bathrooms are located on each hall and communal kitchens are available in each building. Available suites include single rooms, one restroom, a communal living area, a kitchenette with a full-size refrigerator and microwave. Again, rooms are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.

Our primary concern is to provide a clean, attractive and safe place to reside while you are away from home. Exterior Residence Hall doors are automatically locked 24 hours a day with access granted by a magnetic Vanderbilt ID which will be provided to participants at check-in. For security purposes, Allied Universal Security Officers will be checking photo ID’s of all individuals entering the Residence Halls.

Vanderbilt is a pedestrian campus. Parking on campus comes at a premium. The Conference Office works closely with Vanderbilt University Traffic Services to provide parking for Academic Interns. Although there are limited parking options, every effort is made to accommodate all parking requests. Parking is available for the summer at a cost of $150.00 plus tax ($163.88 in total), on a first-come-first-served basis.

All Summer Academic Interns will be required to complete the Haven’s online Sexual Assault Prevention Program prior to acceptance into our unique summer housing program.

Prior to arrival on campus, Academic Interns must complete an application to obtain a Vanderbilt ID. Part of the process will be to upload a photo that will be used for the identification process when gaining entrance into your residence halls.

These special housing accommodations are designed to house serious academic students only. We expect all participants to follow all University policies and procedures, as well as Tennessee laws. Vanderbilt University reserves the right to evict students found to be in violation of University policy and/or Tennessee Law, and your payment(s) may be forfeited.
