A Tale of Three Universities: Neighborhood Campuses

Tuesday, April 16, 2019 09:00 AM – 2:30 PM Tour 8 Tours
Separate Ticket Required

Does the campus define the neighborhood, or does the neighborhood inform the campus? This tour we will explore how Vanderbilt, Belmont, and Lipscomb universities have been transformed during the past decade through broad expansion of their campus buildings and land. With each university offering new models of on-campus housing as well as additional schools/programs, participants will see how the use of institutional overlays can assist with rapid university growth within the distinctive characteristics of the historic neighborhood fabric of 12South, Hillsboro Village, and Belmont Boulevard. They will also see how student integration into the neighborhood can foster adjacent private development, off-campus housing, and vibrant retail centers.
