Blakemore House

Opened in August 2012, Blakemore House is home to 142 upperclass women and men. Students live on three floors in a mixture of single rooms, double rooms and triple rooms. Featuring the campus’s only double rooms with full private bathrooms, Blakemore House is a popular choice for students seeking large rooms, plentiful lounge and study space, and convenient parking.

Blakemore House is sited on a large property that boasts a very large backyard with walking paths, picnic tables, patio furniture, and attractive safety lighting. Inside, students enjoy a fireplace lounge, a large lounge/study area looking out on the back yard, music practice room, and study room.

Blakemore House is located on Vanderbilt Place next to the Vanderbilt University Police Department and less than one block from Dudley Stadium and McGugin Center, the home of Vanderbilt Athletics. It is also close to Centennial Park, Paddock Place shopping, and many West End Avenue restaurants and shops.
