Campus and Law School Visitors

Vanderbilt University deeply values its neighbors, community partners and visitors that make our community so vibrant. As part of our comprehensive efforts to limit the spread of COVID-19 at Vanderbilt, throughout the city of Nashville and beyond as much as possible, the presence of visitors is permitted on campus when pre-arranged, which may include imposing certain heightened expectations for those visitors who are permitted as outlined by the University's governing policies and protocols.
