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)

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.
