E. Bronson Ingram College
E. Bronson Ingram College represents an expansion of the Residential Colleges program—a key pillar of the Academic Strategic Plan representing vibrant living-learning communities that create transformative educational experiences for Vanderbilt students.
In May of 2016, Vanderbilt took the next step in extending students’ living and learning experience beyond the classroom when the next phase of construction began on E. Bronson Ingram College. The newest residential college addition to The Residential Colleges Program will open for occupancy in Fall of 2018. The new residential college is located on the former site of Vanderbilt and Barnard halls and will provide housing for 240 sophomores, juniors, and seniors. E. Bronson Ingram College will offer a variety of spaces in which its residents can live, learn, collaborate and socialize. The 205,000 sq. ft. facility will house students, faculty advisors and graduate students. Residents will have on-site access to a share dining room, study lounges, social spaces and formal & informal outdoor green spaces. The appointment of the new Bronson College faculty director is expected to be made in early 2018.
