Information Sessions & Tours

Vanderbilt’s information session and campus tour begins with an hour-long presentation from an admissions counselor, who will give you key insights into the admissions process, financial aid and scholarships, and more. Afterward, a student tour guide will lead you across our beautiful 330-acre, park-like campus detailing the academic and social life on campus and in Music City from a student’s perspective. Lasting approximately 90 - 110 minutes, the campus tour includes a visit to a residential hall, a look at several academic facilities, The Commons Center, and more.

  • You must register to attend an information session and tour.
  • Please do not make non-refundable travel plans until you receive confirmation of your visit registration.
