Dining Tents


Due to COVID-19 social distancing recommendations, seating will not be available in our dining halls.  In order to provide students with a safe, alternative space for enjoying a meal, Campus Dining has erected large dining tents, conveniently located around campus.  Dining tents are open 7 days a week, from 7:30am – 9:00pm.

Please note that tent seating is first-come, first served.  Please disregard signage that indicates tents require reservations.


Simply arrive at one of three dining tents and present your Vanderbilt ID.  Tents are open to all members of the Vanderbilt community who are authorized to be on campus.  When you check in, you will scan a QR code that registers you for a 20 minute dining session.  When your session expires, your mobile phone will alert you that time has elapsed.  We ask that you kindly clean your area for the next guest before leaving.
