Fitness & Health
Student health is a priority at Tulane. Pilates, yoga, spinning, a 7,000 square-foot weight room and an Olympic-size swimming pool are just a few of the fitness resources that Tulane provides its students. Tulane also provides top-notch medical resources; our Tulane Student Health Center is right on campus.
Students enjoy staying fit at Tulane's Reily Center, a state-of-the-art recreational facility encompassing 156,000 square feet and including an Olympic-sized indoor pool; a 1/9th-mile indoor track; basketball, racquetball, squash, and volleyball courts; a weight room; saunas; and studios for aerobics, yoga, and pilates. Wellness programs, including fitness consultations and personal training sessions, are available at the Reily Center, as are multiple free group exercise classes.
Aside from working out at the Reily Center, students take advantage of many other ways to stay in shape. Tulane has over 35 different club sports and several intramural sports. Our campus is also right across the street from Audubon Park, a fantastic place to walk, jog, or even play golf.
The Student Health Center, a component of Tulane University Medical Center, provides basic medical and psychiatric care while maintaining a sensitivity to age, gender, disability, culture, ethnic background, sexual orientation, and gender identity. Additionally, Tulane Emergency Medical Service has fully certified emergency medical technicians ready to respond to campus emergencies.
