HOTEL ACCOMMODATIONS

We have reserved blocks of rooms at area hotels. You may also check out other hotels in the downtown and surrounding areas.

ATTIRE

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.

PARKING/SHUTTLES

Where do I park when I come to campus?
Terrace Place Garage (2010 Terrace Place) is the best place to park during Reunion. Shuttles will run on a continuous loop from Terrace Place Garage to and from campus for undergraduate Reunion alumni and guests. See the campus map for other parking locations and shuttle routes and hours. (link to PDF campus map and Weekend Parking Doc).

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.

WEATHER

What if there is inclement weather?
Reunion is a rain or shine event. 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 events.

Text alerts
Vanderbilt offers a complimentary early alert system for all Reunion attendees. The system will inform you, via text message, of severe weather or emergencies. Sign up when you register online.

REUNION GIVING

How do I make my Reunion gift?
You may give online or by phone—call Katie Fayard at (615) 322-3696. You can designate your gift to any area of Vanderbilt. We hope you will consider a gift or pledge to one or both of the university’s very highest Reunion fundraising priorities: undergraduate scholarship endowment and the unrestricted annual fund for your school. Your Reunion gift will also count toward your class goals. Learn more about Reunion giving.
