Featheringill Hall is the school's newest building, featuring the three-story Adams Atrium designed to be a focal point for student interaction and social events. Just off the Adams Atrium is the Jacobs Believed In Me Auditorium (left), which serves the engineering community as a central location for lectures, large meetings and classes. Featheringill Hall also contains more than 50 teaching and research laboratories. Laboratories and classrooms are equipped for wired and wireless computer connections. The building also houses offices and design studios.

Stevenson Center includes the Dean's office and numerous classrooms, lecture halls and laboratories. Biomedical engineering laboratories are housed in this building, although biomedical research is also done in laboratories in the Vanderbilt Medical complex. Computer science also maintains some offices and classrooms in the Stevenson Center.

Jacobs Hall contains laboratories, offices and classrooms for civil and environmental engineering and electrical engineering and computer science. This building underwent a $28 million renovation, completed in July 2002, which incorporated classrooms, research and social facilities that are modern in functionality and aesthetics.

Olin Hall is a nine-story building of classrooms, laboratories and offices for chemical and biomolecular engineering and mechanical engineering. Renovated in 2011, Olin now offers modern undergraduate and research laboratories, new graduate student suites and updated classrooms.

ISIS-ISDE building on Nashville's Music Row (16th Avenue South) provides approximately 40,000 square feet of lab, office and conference space for the School of Engineering's Institute for Space and Defense Electronics (ISDE) and the Institute for Software Integrated Systems (ISIS).

W.M. Keck FEL Center, once home to the university's free-electron laser, the Keck Center offers space to biomedical engineering's biomedical photonics labs, and houses lasers used in research projects in electrical engineering.
