Parking Information

Map of Parking Options

Vanderbilt University's parking office allows visitors to access paid hourly parking via the Parkmobile APP at $3.50 an hour. Consider carpooling. There are multiple pay parking lots – we suggest you access one of the two on  map of parking options (see link above). The Wesley Place Garage will be the easiest and here is the google address: 1921-2041 Scarritt Pl, Nashville, TN 37212

General information about parking on campus and access to the parkmobile app:  Visitor Parking | Parking Services | Vanderbilt University

If you arrive early, you may be able to find free parking on the streets surrounding campus. However, most streets are limited to only two hours of parking.

Please note: DO NOT use any of the medical center parking options, as these are reserved for patient visits. If you park in the medical center parking lots/garages, patients will be unable to find a space for their visits. So, it is essential that you DO NOT park in the medical center lots. Non-patient parkers will be fines and/or towed.

You will NOT need to register on Friday - you can go directly to your first presentation session. (NOTE: MNPS employees, follow directions provided by your Leads). 


You will have access to one presentation for each session. Synchronous viewing will be via a Zoom Link and asynchronous viewing will be via a Vimeo Link.

The Vimeo links will be shared at the end of each day, at about 5 pm and will come from the same email addresses.
