Student Hosting

Congratulations for getting an interview at Vanderbilt!

We hope you enjoy your visit to VUSM! We know how expensive the medical school interview process can be. As a result, we’re happy to offer a limited amount of student hosting for applicants to Vanderbilt. Although a sofa or sleeping bag on the floor may not be as nice as a hotel, staying with a medical student has its advantages. You will get to meet a current medical student who can answer your questions about life at Vanderbilt University Medical School and Nashville while saving a little money in the process.

Due to our medical students’ schedules, they are only able to provide housing for one night before your interview. We will try our best to match you with a student host, though we cannot guarantee availability. Please complete the Student Host Request Form as soon as possible to request accommodations for your visit, preferably two weeks prior to your arrival. We tend to assign hosts in order of interview date, so please be patient if you are signing up over a month ahead of time. If you have not heard from us five days before your interview, please seek alternate accommodations.

After you submit your information, you will receive an automated confirmation email. If you have any questions, please contact We look forward to meeting you and wish you well in your medical school application process!
