Weatherhead Hall was distinguished with a Society for College and University Planning Excellence in Architecture for a New Building Honor Award this past summer. Tulane University and the design team of Hanbury Evans Wright Vlattas + Company and John C. Williams Architects were recognized at SCUP’s annual 2013 conference. The jury praised the way the spaces, surfaces and details all synthesized to encourage student interaction within the residence hall. Sustainability was another emphasis in the design of the building, which is certified LEED Gold by the U.S. Green Building Council.

AIA New Orleans granted the Hertz Center a 2013 Design Merit Award at its annual Design Awards ceremony in March. The new practice facility for Men’s and Woman’s Basketball and Women’s Volleyball was designed by Gould Evans Associates and Lee Ledbetter and Associates. The jury appreciated the project's handling of scale with respect to the double court gymnasium and the transparency of the interior spaces. In keeping with the university’s commitment to green building design, The Hertz Center is certified LEED Gold by the U.S. Green Building Council.

Construction continues on Zimple House with the concrete structure rising through Fall 2013. Zimple House will be the third residence hall following the residential college model with Wall Residential College and Weatherhead Hall preceding it.  Zimple House is anticipated to open in time for Move-In of the Fall 2014 semester.

Wall Residential College

Design Team:

Wayne Troyer Architects, Lloyd Bray Architects


Housing and Residence Life

Construction Budget:

$12 Million


August 2005

Located on the site of the old Zemurray Residence Hall, the new Wall Residential College opened its doors in August 2005 to approximately 250 residents. The Wall Residential College is unique among Tulane's residential facilities because in addition to housing undergraduates, it will also provide a home for a faculty member and his or her family. This faculty member will be called the Professor in Residence and will help the college residents engage more fully with the intellectual and social activities at the university. As a resident of this new community, you will be an active participant in the Residential College and have opportunities for leadership, self-governance and intellectual engagement with a mix of faculty, staff and students outside of the classroom.
