Vanderbilt to transform West End into innovative academic and experiential center


Four new residential colleges to open over next five years

Vanderbilt University announced today the launch of its largest-ever capital project, which will replace aging residence halls with innovative residential colleges that will transform West End and support the university’s vision to shape the leaders of tomorrow.

Four new residential colleges will be constructed between the Kirkland Hall Esplanade and 25th Avenue along West End Avenue. Also planned are significant upgrades and beautification of nearby West Side Row and Greek Row. The entire project will be completed by the university’s 150th anniversary in 2023.

“Residential colleges are a physical representation of our mission to educate the whole student and to develop leaders that will change the world. We have chosen to go big and bold on residential education to extend the rigorous, immersive undergraduate experience to the many hours students spend outside the classroom,” Chancellor Nicholas S. Zeppos said. “These new residential colleges will bring together young people of diverse backgrounds and perspectives and ask them to participate in communities based on tolerance, mutual understanding and respectful discourse.
