Vanderbilt is truly Nashville’s treasure.

The school owns several buildings that are included on the National Register of Historic Places as well as three modern sports venues – the Memorial Gymnasium, Vanderbilt Stadium, and Charles Hawkins Field. You’ll also find lush lawns and parks throughout the campus, offering students and faculty an inspiring setting to learn and connect.
