 Hard Hat Building Tours

October 4th | 5:30pm – Building Tour of Vanderbilt University E. Bronson Ingram College

The newest addition to Vanderbilt’s residential college system, the E. Bronson Ingram College will house 350-beds and will replace both Vanderbilt and Barnard Halls. Opening in 2018, the College continues the University’s tradition of blurring the lines between the living and learning environment. Faculty will reside alongside sophomores, juniors and seniors, a model of communal living already found in the Warren and Moore Colleges on campus, and rooted in similar residential college systems at the University of Oxford, University of Cambridge and Yale University.  Hastings Architecture Associates, alongside David M. Schwartz Architects, designed a variety of spaces in which residents can live, learn, and socialize. E. Bronson Ingram College is the first of a multi-phase student housing initiative.
