Pro Tips for Visiting Vanderbilt University

With its undeniable lineage of academic excellence, always competitive Commodore athletics, and perfect blend of city life and greenspace, Vanderbilt University is unlike any campus in Tennessee. If you're a first time visitor, make sure to keep our Vanderbilt campus tips handy during your trip!

  • If you have some spare time on campus, take a stroll through the scenic and serene Vanderbilt Arboretum, which features over 6,000 trees.
  • Head to the Pancake Pantry for a true Vandy experience. Open for breakfast and lunch, this iconic spot has been a campus staple for over 50 years.
  • Since campus tours fill up on busy weekends, make sure to reserve your spot a few weeks in advance.
  • If you're attending your first ever Vanderbilt football game, don't miss the legendary tailgate parties. Fans of the visiting team often park at Harris-Hillman School, and die-hard Commodore fans flock to Vandyville at the corner of Jess Neely Drive and Natchez Trace.
