The Reunion website Schedule of Events will have the most up-to-date information regarding events and details for the weekend.
- How much does my Reunion cost?
In order to keep costs down, alumni only pay for events they are attending and the cost per event varies. Please visit your class webpage to see a listing of events for your class.
- How do I buy tickets to the Homecoming football game?
A limited number of game tickets are available at $69 each. Order your Homecoming tickets at vu.edu/footballtickets.
- Where do I stay during Reunion 2017?
We have reserved blocks of rooms at area hotels.
- What do I wear for the Reunion events?
Dress is casual and comfortable during the day and more festive for evening parties. Young classes tend to dress more casually while older classes typically wear coat and tie to evening events. The Homecoming Tailgate is casual, fun and full of school spirit—wear your black and gold. Many events are outside, so please wear comfortable shoes.
- Who do I contact for disability-related needs?
If you have questions regarding disability-related needs, please contact the Reunion Weekend Office at (615) 322-6034 in advance of your visit.
- Where do I park on campus?
Terrace Place Garage (2010 Terrace Place, 37203, spaces 93–944) is the best place to park during Reunion Weekend. Shuttles will run on a continuous loop on Friday, October 6, from Terrace Place Garage with stops at the Student Life Center (8 a.m.–1 p.m. only) and Sarratt Student Center, 8 a.m.–5 p.m. See the campus map for other parking locations and shuttle routes and hours.
Parking for the tailgate and football game will be at West Garage (across from Purdy Field) in spaces 228-478. Use the 25th Ave. S. entrance. Game day parking is $15.
- What if there's inclement weather?
Reunion is a rain or shine weekend event. Due to the size of Reunion events, we do not have space inside buildings to accommodate all class parties. However, we do prepare tents for inclement weather with sides, heaters or fans as needed. In the unlikely event of severe weather, procedures will be in place to monitor and respond to all weather incidents. The Vanderbilt University Police Department will notify event personnel if an evacuation is imminent, and direct attendees to the safest location until the “all clear” is issued. Attendees may then return to their respective parties.
Vanderbilt offers a complimentary early alert system for all Reunion attendees. The system is designed to inform you, via text message, of severe weather or emergencies. Click here to add your number.
