 Hank Ingram House

"Living in Hank is the absolute BEST way to start your Vanderbilt experience.  With so many diverse perspectives and experiences coming together under one roof, there are incredible opportunities in Hank for residents to learn from each other and engage in conversations that we hope they'll carry with them.  We want our residents to take an active role in shaping the community that is built here.  With nearly 300 family members, you'll always have someone to grab dinner with, play basketball with at the Rec, or read with on Commons Lawn.  Hank is home to thought-provoking conversations and superb hall and house events . By the end of the year, you'll know that Hank's House has become your home!
- Esther Taati and Molly Williams, Hank Ingram House Head Residents
