Tulane hosts youth and adult camps and conferences throughout the summer. Our Conference Housing is conveniently located on Tulane's Uptown Campus. We provide secure housing within walking distance of public transportation and optional parking for an additional fee. All amenities and utilities are included in our nightly rates, including access to laundry and kitchen facilities. Our rates include electricity, air conditioning, cable, and ethernet and wireless access. Housing and Residence Life will provide check-in and check-out services at the beginning and end of the scheduled conference dates. Our University Conferences student staff is on-call in the case of an emergency.


How are rooms assigned for conferences?

Conference groups will provide names, email addresses, dates of accommodation, and any special needs/accommodations of all conference attendees. Room lists will be provided by Housing and Residence Life for conference groups to assign rooms. Room assignments should be received by Housing and Residence Life no later than 10 days prior to the group's arrival to Tulane University. 

Will other conferences be placed in the same building as my conference?

Depending on the size of your conference group, your conference group may be sharing a facility with another conference group. Only conference group members with room assignments will be allowed access, use, and occupancy of the facility. 

What is included in my room rate?

Air-conditioning, wi-fi service, and all utility costs are included in the room rate. Also, with the exception of toilet paper, Housing and Residence Life provides no bathroom supplies. No kitchen supplies such as pots, pans, dishes or cutlery are available. 

Are linens available?

Bed and bath linens (2 sheets, 1 blanket, 1 pillow and pillowcase, 1 bath towel) are available for an additional $5 per night per person fee. Beds will not be “made up.” If requested, linens must be ordered for the entire group. We cannot accept individual linen requests. Additionally, Housing and Residence Life will not exchange linens for guests. Free laundry machines are available in each residential facility. 

Is parking available?

Parking passes are available to conference groups for an additional fee. 

Do conference guests have access to a fitness center?

Access to the Reily Fitness Center is available to conference groups for an additional fee. If requested, Fitness Center passes must be ordered for the entire group. We cannot accept individual Fitness Center pass requests. 

How do I reserve space for my group? 

The Conference Housing Reservation Form specifies the housing needs of your group. Before completing the Reservation Form please gather information about the following: 

  • Participant, staff and/or chaperone numbers 
  • Dates of arrival and departure for staff, early arrivals and participants 
  • Tulane University Sponsoring Department contact information and billing information (if applicable)
  • Preference on building location and/or style 

Completing a Reservation Form is non-binding; a group can cancel a reservation before the Housing Contract is due. Information can be updated once a reservation is complete but prior to contract creation. The information provided in your Reservation Form will be used to create your contract. The contract covers basic information about your group’s stay, including the number of attendees, dates and other important details. One contract per group/session/camp will be generated. Generally, a group is given 21 days to return a contract.
