Internet Exchange Area
The Vanderbilt University Police Department has designated the lobby of the Police building located at 2800 Vanderbilt Place as an “Exchange Area”. The Exchange Area is for VU students, faculty and staff to trade legal items bought and sold online on various second hand applications in a safe environment. The building/lobby is located next to the Vandy Van stop in lot 72C near Dudley Stadium (MAP). Either the seller or buyer must be Vanderbilt affiliated (Student, Faculty or staff). VUPD Officers will not screen items or be present to supervise trades in the Exchange Area. The affiliated person must complete the online registration form prior to the actual trade.
- VUPD urges all buyers and sellers; if one person in the exchange does not want to conduct the trade at “Exchange Area” VUPD recommends that you do not trade with the individual.
- It is illegal to exchange drugs or stolen property. Firearms are prohibited on university property and in university buildings.
The lobby is open 24hrs 7 days a week for trades. There are two parking spaces also designated to support the trade. The telephone located in the lobby direct calls the VUPS Communications Center.
