Tulane University

Undergraduate Admission


Tulane has several different housing options, which include co-ed dorms, female-only residence halls, residential colleges and theme-based living arrangements. For more information, please visit Housing & Residence Life's website.

Tulane's residence halls – equipped with study lounges, kitchenettes, laundry facilities, air conditioning, and internet connections – provide a convenient center for student life on campus. All first- and second-year students reside on campus unless they are approved to reside at their immediate family’s home in the Greater New Orleans area.

  • Monroe Hall is coed and home to first-year students.
  • Paterson House, also known as the Wellness Community, is a coed dorm that is home to both freshmen and sophomores. Paterson offers programming themed around health and fitness.
  • Sharp Hall is coed and home to first-year students.
  • Wall Residential College is a coed, blended community of first-year and returning students, and it is also the home to a professor-in-residence and his or her family.
  • Butler House is a coed dorm for primarily freshmen honors students, and it is where some honors student programming takes place. Butler is not exclusive to honors students, however: not all students who live in Butler are in the honors program, and not all honors students live in Butler.
  • Josephine Louise Hall, or JL, is a female-only hall that is home to first-year students, transfer students, and selected returning students. Approximately 25% of female freshmen live in JL.
  • Barbara Greenbaum House is a coed community of first-year students and upperclassmen, and it is home to a professor-in-residence and his or her family. Greenbaum includes a classroom and demonstration kitchen.
