Construction on Greenbaum House is now complete and is being occupied by it's first class of students for the 2014-2015 academic year. Greenbaum House will be the third residence hall following the residential college model with Wall Residential College and Weatherhead Hall preceding it.

The renovation of Dinwiddie is Tulane's first LEED Gold certified construction project. Reusing an existing building--rather than building new--recycling building materials, specifying local and regional materials, building in energy and water efficiency and building commissioning, and maximizing daylighting while preventing solar heat gain are just a few of the "green" features of the renovation project.
