Rothschild College

Opened in August 2022, Rothschild College is the fifth residential college to open in the West End Neighborhood.

Rothschild College also features a dining hall, great room, study lounges and a reservable Black Box Theater. Inaugural faculty head of Rothschild College, Associate Professor of Engineering Ravindra Duddu, will also reside in the college alongside his family.

Rothschild College is the next step in the expansion of the residential college system—a pillar of the Academic Strategic Plan representing vibrant living-learning communities that create transformative educational experiences for Vanderbilt students.


Signature Programs

Roth n’ Roll: Residents of Rothschild College will gather together each week to enjoy some sort of “rolled snack” and have lite conversations about life, food, music, and wellness.

Faculty Speakers: Each month, Professor Duddu invites a faculty guest to join the residents of Rothschild College in a discussion on a particular theme, ranging from business to art, innovation, education, and more.

College Leadership

Rothschild College council

The Rothschild College Council is comprised of up to five Vanderbilt student leaders who are residents of Rothschild, each dedicated to the development of the college community. Working alongside the faculty head of college and gathering input from their fellow residents, the Rothschild Council generates programs that enrich the learning environment of the college.

The 2022-2023 Rothschild College Council will be appointed and elected in early fall 2022.
