On-Campus Housing

Student Moving in

Living on-campus is a great way to meet people and become and active member of the campus community.  Undergraduate students and exchange students are encouraged to apply early because on-campus housing is limited. Residence halls are fully furnished. 

The Tulane Office of Housing and Residential Life (HRL) manages on campus residences.  HRL receives applications, application fees, matches roommates and completes the housing contracts for students.  Since on-campus housing fills quickly, students should apply as soon as possible after applying to Tulane University.

Perks of Living in Residence Halls

Live Smart: Recent research of college students across the nation indicates that students who live on campus are more satisfied with their college experience, earn higher grade point averages, and are more likely to graduate. (According to the American Council on Education)

Live Close: Why drive when you can walk! In five minutes, you can be anywhere on campus---classes, chapel, cafeteria, gym, library, computer labs, bookstore, friends and campus offices like the Registrar’s office, Financial Aid and Student Services. Time is money.

Live Connected: There is a real disconnection for students who live off campus. Easy access to friends, faculty and staff is hindered. Participation in programs, groups, activities, games and events is less likely for off campus students. There are many opportunities to serve and leadership and earn scholarships for students who live on campus.

Live Cheaper: At first glance, living off-campus often seems like a good option. All the cost have to be considered---like rent, deposits, water, electric, cable, internet, phone service, furniture, food, etc. This does not take into account the time involved in driving, gas, purchasing food, etc. On campus we have all that covered!

Live Secure: Campus security is on call and patrolling our campus 24/7, every day of the year. They protect our students and their vehicles.

Live Supported: Living on campus offers each student the emotional, spiritual, social and academic support to succeed as a student. Every Residence Hall has Resident Advisors and professional staff on hand. Faculty, staff, professional counselors and administration are available and close.

Live In Community: Living on campus allows students to know what is going on and be part of it. Learning about different types of people with various backgrounds can be an opportunity for the student to develop a more balanced world view.  Resident Advisors plan and implement a wide variety of programs and events that has something for everyone!

Live Together: Let’s face it. Isolation, on a regular basis, is not a healthy practice. We need each other and we need the resources that are offered in the campus environment.

Live on Time: Time Management is one of the biggest challenges of being a college student today is never having enough time to do ALL the things they want.  Well, living on-campus may make those time-dependent decisions easier.  By being in the heart of campus, students will find it much easier and more likely that they will become involved in campus organizations and athletic teams, attend sponsored programs, and get assignments done ahead of time by accessing the resources of the University.

Live: Experience the whole package of college life by living on campus. Enjoy your college experience. You have the rest of your life to live off campus.
