Tulane University strives to create residential communities that support strong relationships and incorporate academic learning into the student experience. Students at Tulane have several different housing options, which include co-ed residence halls, residential learning communities, cluster housing, and more. 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 meet the local residency exemption criteria specified in the Housing Agreement.
