The mission of Housing and Residence Life (HRL) is to foster residential communities that inspire and empower student learning and growth. Through transformational and purposeful learning opportunities, students living in residential communities at Tulane University will become engaged scholars and responsible community members.
Housing & Residence Life Educational Pillars
Live: At Tulane, the focus in the residential living environment is to provide more than just a bed in a room. HRL offers students a physical space that is clean and well maintained as well as has amenities that support the overall student experience.
Learn: The residential environment at Tulane is designed to promote and support the academic mission of the university. The academic programs in the halls and the connections with faculty members reinforce this learning environment.
Grow: HRL programs encourage student growth by helping residents understand the role they play in their campus community and the larger community as a whole.
Living in a residence hall can be one of the most rewarding experiences of your college career. Your relationships with roommates, suitemates, and floormates will make your residence hall feel like home. Once you receive your housing assignment, reach out to your roommate(s) to introduce yourself and communicate your expectations and hopes for the room.
Before you arrive, be sure to review the Code of Student Conduct, Housing Agreement, and Community Living Standards.
As part of Tulane’s Residential Curriculum, Housing and Residence Life offers a number of opportunities for residents and faculty to interact in meaningful ways. By bringing faculty and residents together, residents are empowered to form academic support systems, engage more deeply in their studies, and form lasting relationships with their community
The Faculty in Residence (FIR) is a full-time faculty member who lives in a residence hall on campus and serves as a positive and visible leader, teacher, and mentor to students living in the residence halls.
The Residential Faculty Mentor (RFM) Program, co-sponsored by the Office of the First Year Experience and Housing and Residence Life, aims to increase meaningful engagement between full-time faculty and first-year students in residence halls. RFMs support your transition to the academic and social communities of the university through programs and office hours held right in your residence hall.
You’re almost ready for Move-In! This is one of the most exciting times for students, their families, and the Tulane community. Housing & Residence Life has outlined the move-in day process here and in the July New Student Module. Please take time to carefully read through this information and share it with those who will support you during your move so that you can make a plan for your arrival.
First-year students will move-in between Sunday, August 13 and Wednesday, August 15. You should have received an email from HRL with your assigned move-in day and time slot. For more information regarding move-in day logistics, please refer to the videos found in the July New Student Module. These videos also cover shipping packages to campus, room information, and answers to frequently asked questions.
As part of first-year students' Move-In, the Carolyn Barber Pierre Center for Intercultural Life hosts an orientation program centering students of color, LGBTQIA+ students, and their families. The purpose of the CIL Orientation is to get connected to resources and individuals who can offer support and advice to ensure the students we serve have a successful transition into Tulane. It's an opportunity to hear from campus administrators and staff in the Center for Intercultural Life, including the Office of Multicultural Affairs, The Office for Gender & Sexual Diversity, and Spiritual Life. Our goal is to help every student get access to the tools they need to thrive during their Tulane experience.
The program, including a dinner, will be held in the Carolyn Barber Pierre Center for Intercultural Life, 1st floor, Richardson Building, from 6-7:30pm on each of the Move-In Days:
- Sunday, August 13
- Monday, August 14
- Tuesday, August 15
To help you stay on track of upcoming deadlines, we have created a New Student Checklist of important tasks to complete prior to your arrival. Below are upcoming tasks:
You should have received a message instructing you to sign a mail contract. The university no longer requires mail contracts. Please forgive our error. By now, all students should have received an information packet from Mail Services delivered via USPS mail and to Tulane email accounts. Please use this information for in-room delivery ahead of move-in and pay special attention to your mail code, shipping dates, and information on the shipping portal. If you have questions, please contact Mail Services.
