Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tenn., is building three residential colleges for upper-division students.
The university says the initiative on the Highland Quadrangle section of campus will expand upon the living-learning environments already in place on The Martha Rivers Ingram Commons and in the West End Neighborhood.
Existing residence halls—Morgan House, Lewis House, the Mayfield Living Learning Lodges and Chaffin Place—will be torn down to make way for the new residential colleges. The existing buildings are scheduled for closure in 2024.

Another residential college, Rothschild College, is set to open this fall in the West End Neighborhood, and a sixth residential collegeis scheduled to open in 2024.
Construction on the three new residential colleges in the Highland Quad are expected to be completed in 2027.
