Health and Safety


Student Health Center
Staffed by nurse practitioners and physicians, the Student Health Center at Vanderbilt is open Monday — Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to noon. Appointments are preferred, but a walk — in clinic is available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Psychological and Counseling Center
The PCC provides individual counseling for personal, social, academic, and emotional problems. Most counseling services are provided free of charge.

Vanderbilt Police
As a professional law enforcement agency, the VPD is dedicated to the protection and security of Vanderbilt University and its community. VPD services and programs include:

  • Vandy Vans — this complimentary shuttle service runs throughout the campus from 5:00 p.m. until 5:00 a.m. Walking escorts are also available upon request.
  • Emergency Phones — the press of a button automatically dials the VPD Communications Center from more than 100 locations across campus. An officer will be sent to check on the caller, even if nothing is communicated to the dispatcher.
  • Lost and Foundfound property may be turned in at any time to the Police Department. Inquiries about lost items may be made by contacting VPD's property clerk by phone at 615-343-5371 or online.
