We are disheartened by the reports of thefts in our residence halls following Hurricane Ida. Beyond financial loss, we recognize that these thefts represent a violation of personal space, comfort and trust. In the aftermath of Hurricane Ida, our goal was to assess and repair residence halls in order to return our students to their campus homes. This included contracting with several companies experienced in damage assessment and remediation. It is apparent that during the assessment and remediation process, an individual or individuals took advantage of the emergency situation.
We are deeply sorry for our students’ losses and that our recovery process did not protect everyone’s belongings. As part of our ongoing review of emergency protocols, we are developing strategies to avoid such a situation in the future.
All reports of theft should follow the following process:
All reports must be filed with TUPD by Wednesday, October 6, 2021.
All supporting documentation must be provided by Friday, November 12 at 5:00 p.m. CST. After that date, documentation will not be accepted. To submit documentation, students must reply with attachments to the email they receive from Tulane Campus Services.
