Warren College

Opened in August 2014, Warren College provides state-of-the-art living accommodations inside gothic-style architecture.

Warren College is home to 319 upper-division students in four, five, and six-person suites along with more traditional double and single rooms. Students live on all floors of this five-story building. Building residents are encouraged to take advantage of the lounges, study areas, music rooms, conference rooms, common kitchen and laundry facilities. The faculty head of college lives on the fifth floor in an apartment.

Warren College is named in honor of 1925 Vanderbilt graduate Robert Penn Warren, member of the influential Fugitive poets and the first poet laureate of the United States.

Warren College represents an expansion of the residential college system—a key pillar of the Academic Strategic Plan representing vibrant living-learning communities that create transformative educational experiences for Vanderbilt students.
