Campuses/Properties

 



  • Uptown Campus: Tulane’s historic uptown campus, approximately 110 acres, has a long and narrow footprint extending from St. Charles Avenue to Claiborne Avenue.  This area is called the University District due to the presence of Tulane and Loyola universities, which abut each other from St. Charles Avenue down to Freret Street.  The surrounding neighborhood is primarily residential, including large single family estates, modest single family homes, doubles and multi-family apartments, and student rentals.  The campus is characterized by its mature live oaks and intimate scale, a reflection of its neighborhood setting.  This campus serves the undergraduate and graduate programs in Liberal Arts and Sciences, Architecture, Law, Business, Science & Engineering, and the School of Continuing Studies.  The campus also provides housing for 64% of undergraduate students as well as dining, recreation, and athletic facilities to serve that population.

  • Downtown Campus: Located adjacent to New Orleans’s Central Business District, the Downtown campus is comprised of 10 mid-high rise buildings.  It is primarily home to the School of Medicine, School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine, and the School of Social Work.  Technology Services and Institutional Advancement have significant administrative units at the downtown campus and others.

  • University Square: This cluster of mid-level office spaces is located south of the uptown campus at 200 Broadway Street, a former shopping center,  housing many university support services.

  • River & Coastal Center: This property is about to begin construction for Phase I of the project and fronts the Mississippi River.  It will host the Center for Excellence in Coastal Restoration and the Tulane/Xavier Center for Bioenvironmental Research.  The larger vision for the site is to connect the larger New Orleans community and Tulane through river and coastal research, exhibiting and hands on learning experiences as well as event space along the river.

  • Elmwood Campus: Located in Harahan, Louisiana (a 15 minute drive up river), this satellite campus is home to the School of Continuing Studies and several Tulane administrative departments.

  • Iris Avenue/Goldring Property: This 17 acre parcel of land lies two miles from the uptown campus (just outside of Orleans Parish) and is currently undeveloped.  The university has explored its use as recreational fields and use for athletic venues.
