This year's annual open enrollment for Vanderbilt's benefits-eligible faculty and staff is Oct. 1-15.

Enrollment labs will be set up during Open Enrollment for those who don't have a computer available for online enrollment. The enrollment lab schedule is posted on the HR Web site.

A computer will be available for online enrollment in HR Express, 2525 West End Ave., second floor, from 7:30 a.m. to 5:15 p.m. each weekday during Open Enrollment.

The personalized enrollment form included in Open Enrollment packets in recent years is being eliminated this year, as 92 percent of faculty and staff enrolled online last year. Blank forms are available for those wishing to use a paper form.

Those forms can be printed from the HR site ( or picked up from HR Express.

HR Express will be the only place on campus to drop off a paper form and paper forms are due by 5 p.m. on Oct. 15. Paper forms should not be mailed.
