Peabody Accessibility

We consistently work to ensure that all students have a full experience during their time at Peabody.

Our campus often houses impediments to equitable to access that are outside of our immediate control. If an impediment impairs a students from accessing services, locations, or experiences it must be removed or reasonable accommodations must be made to ensure that the student is able to navigate Peabody Campus as freely as possible.

Peabody Office of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion often works in collaboration with other entities in maintaining an inclusive and equitable environment. Collaborative work is both proactive and reactive regarding situations of inaccessibility. This process of this work unfolds once a barrier to access has been experienced by a student or campus member. The person is prompted to utilize the Commodore Access Portal located on Vanderbilt Student Access Services website.

The Commodore Access Portal will be the ultimate mode of communication around accommodations for students, faculty, and the Student Access team. 

Students will use the Commodore Access Portal to connect with the office, request accommodations, and schedule exams. Through this portal, the Student Access team is then able to view requests, schedule exams, and collaborate with students and faculty to ensure students are receiving access. Faculty will also use the Commodore Access Portal to view Accommodation Letters and Provide proctoring information to our testing coordinator. 

If you are an incoming student, a member of the SAS team will meet with you to discuss your accommodations and show you the Commodore Access Portal.

Student Access Services is the primary conduit of information and resources concerning all accessibility questions, accommodations, and needs.Student Access Services Center is located in Suites 108 & 975 of the Baker Building at the corner of 21st Ave. S and Terrace Place. A map of the campus can be viewed at
