Hurricane Season begins June 1 and ends November 30,
though the peak of the season is from August through October.*

Living with the threat of a serious hurricane is part of living in New Orleans. Because our first concern is for the safety of our students and employees, Tulane University has emergency plans and teams in place if a storm approaches the New Orleans area. We plan ahead in conjunction with city, parish and emergency officials.

Additionally, Tulane has contracted with a weather consultant to provide exclusive information regarding any hurricane threat to New Orleans so that we can keep students, parents and our employees apprised.

You must plan ahead in the event New Orleans is threatened by a hurricane. These plans should include your destination and transportation arrangements.
