West House

“Welcome to West House! Here you’ll find more than just a residential hall but also a home and community that wants to help you reach your fullest potential throughout your first year at Vandy and beyond. The house’s incredible staff, comprised of resident advisers and faculty head Professor Christoph Zeller, will be there to guide and support you on this journey. In doing so, we at West House strive to create an environment where residents embrace each other’s differences, discover each other’s similarities, and feel comfortable being their authentic selves. We are so thrilled to have you in West House and cannot wait to see you grow, learn, and succeed during your time in West!”
- Tommy Oswalt, Head Resident Adviser
