Party Registration

The purpose of registering parties is to allow residential community members the freedom to host activities in their apartments/suites while still maintaining an environment that promotes academic and social well roundedness. The registration process is in no way meant to infringe on personal rights, rather it serves to strengthen the community by setting reasonable boundaries.

All private parties (defined as gatherings of more than 10 people) must be registered with the Area Coordinator of the apartment/suite residential area 24 hours prior to the registered event, or by Friday (of the week the event is to occur) by 12:00pm (Noon).


To register a party, do the following:

1. Go to and log in.

2. Find your residence hall from the “My Shortcuts” menu at the top of the page.

3. Once on the Residence Hall page, select the “Forms” tab.

4. Select the “Party Registration” form.

5. Submit the form.

Parties must comply with the following guidelines.

  • Registration consists of notifying the Area Coordinator of the intent to host a party. The Area Coordinator reserves the right to deny the registration of the party.
  • No one under the age of 21 is allowed to possess or consume alcohol. This is in accordance with Tennessee State Law and Vanderbilt University Policy.
