Vanderbilt University is a university in the West End neighborhood in Nashville, Tennessee. The university was established in 1873 and named for Cornelius Vanderbilt, who provided the school with its first donation of a million dollars. Vanderbilt hoped that his contribution, along with the work of the university would be helpful in healing some of the sectional wounds created by the Civil War. The University has 330 acres, which includes the main campus, the medical center and some sparsely used land on the main campus. The historical center of the campus sits on about 75 acres.
Historic Vanderbilt is known for its many trees and green space, a stark contrast to the urban Nashville it calls home. The Association of Botanical Gardens and Arboreta named Vanderbilt as a national arboretum in 1988. On campus, you will find about 190 species of shrubs and trees. History lovers will appreciate that the Bicentennial Oak is certified as having lived during the American Revolution, making it the oldest living thing at Vanderbilt. Vanderbilt enrolls students from the U.S. as well as foreign countries in both undergraduate, graduate and professional schools. Research centers and institutes are also affiliated with the university. Vanderbilt University Medical Center became a separate institution in 2016. The only part of Vanderbilt that is not on the 330-acre campus is the off-campus observatory and the Institute. Residence halls are west of the original campus. Four residence halls and apartments and lodges are available for students.
