The Vandy area not only includes Vanderbilt University, but also Belmont University, Hillsboro Village, Upper Broadway, and parts of West End. There are thousands of permanent residents in this part of Nashville who have helped create a culturally diverse and eclectic part of town. But don’t expect all of that coolness to come cheap, the Vandy area is one of the more expensive parts of Nashville. Newer condo buildings like the Enclave, Bristol West End and The West End have 1 bedroom condos that start around $1,000/mo and 3 bedroom condos that end close to $6,000/mo. You can also find some great bungalows and WWII era renovated rental homes within a mile of Vandy’s campus.
