Cost of Living
Nashville has a low cost of living and a great quality of life.
All Owen students live off campus. There are several residential buildings within one mile of Owen and several more that are within walking distance. Our students typically publish an overview of housing options in March and post it to the Admitted Applicants website. You may also visit the Off-Campus Referral Service website provided by the Vanderbilt University Office of Housing and Residential Education.
