Campus Life

Students enjoy outdoor dining at the LBC at twilight

Tulane’s beautiful, tree-lined campus will feel like home in no time. Our students can choose to live in residential colleges with people who share their interests, or opt for a more traditional dorm experience. Residence halls and libraries offer quiet places to study but there are many other cozy spots to study or even take a nap between classes.

With over 25 dining locations on campus, students are never far from a wide range of meals and snacks. A monthly farmer’s market, food trucks and a late night diner are some of the most popular offerings.

In a city where the temperature rarely goes below 50°F, Tulane students are almost always able to spend their free time active and outdoors. With more than 200 student organizations, including 24 fraternities and sororities and a wide variety of collegiate and intramural athletics teams to take part in, students here have many ways to get involved on campus. The Reily Student Recreation Center, Tulane’s on-campus gym also is a great place to unwind after a long day to go swimming, take an exercise class or run a few laps around the indoor track.

There are a number of entertaining theatrical performances, concerts and speakers on campus throughout the year. Tulane students are never at a loss for activities, either behind the scenes, onstage or in the audience.

The Lavin-Bernick Center for University Life and The Commons is a focal point for campus life with comfortable study spaces, multiple dining options, a bookstore and other retail shops. It's also the home for student organizations and many of the departments that provide student services.
