Vanderbilt University is located on over 300 acres about a mile and a half southwest of downtown Nashville. Home to more than 300 tree and shrub varieties, the campus was designated a national arboretum in 1988. Buildings on campus date to as early as the University’s founding in 1873. The Peabody section of campus has been a registered National Historic Landmark since 1966.
A green roof is a roof of a building or structure that is covered in vegetation. Did you know that Vanderbilt has several green roofs on campus? Portions of the Nursing Annex, the Math Building Plaza, and the Medical Center Courtyard are green roofs!
