Apply for housing on the Housing Portal!

All students who live on campus must submit a Housing Application and sign a Housing Agreement. Log onto your Housing Portal to access your application.

FIRST-YEAR STUDENTS

Newly admitted students can begin applying for Fall housing in early March. Applications for Spring housing open in late October or early November. Students must complete their Housing Application and sign their Housing Agreement by early May. Students are then sent their housing assignments in mid-July. 

Preferences - First-year students are placed based on the availability of each space. HRL does its best to honor roommate and community preferences, but does not guarantee housing within these preferences.

Gender Inclusive Housing (GIH) - If you would like to be assigned to Gender Inclusive Housing, you must indicate that on your housing application. Not sure? Learn more about Gender Inclusive Housing

 

TRANSFER STUDENTS

First-year and sophomore students are required to live on campus (for more information, see Residency Requirements). Rising sophomores will submit their Housing Applications in February and select their rooms in March. 

Preferences - Transfer students are placed based on the availability of each space. HRL does its best to honor roommate and community preferences, but does not guarantee housing within these preferences.

RESIDENTIAL LEARNING COMMUNITIES

Incoming students are encouraged to apply to live in a Residential Learning Community (RLC). Tulane RLCs are immersive, collaborative living spaces that encourage students to exchange, challenge, question, and grow—both academically and socially. Learn more about RLCs.
