Wall Residential College is one of Tulane's mixed class residence halls, housing students from first years to seniors. Students from all disciplines can apply to become members of Tulane's Residential College. Wall Residential College, a Living Learning Community, houses approximately 250 students on the side of the old Zemurray Residence Hall. 

Wall Residential College is unique among Tulane's residential facilities because in addition to housing undergraduates, it is also home to a faculty member and his or her family. This Professor in Residence will help the college residents to become more engaged in the intellectual and social activities at the University.

As a resident of this community you will have opportunities for leadership, self governance, and intellectual engagement with a mix of faculty, staff, and students outside of the classroom.
