COVID-19 Visitor Policy

Tulane University deeply values its neighbors, community partners, and visitors that make our campus community so vibrant. However, as part of our comprehensive efforts to limit the spread of COVID-19 at Tulane, throughout the city of New Orleans and beyond as much as possible, we have made the difficult decision to limit the presence of visitors on campus, and to impose certain heightened expectations of visitors who are permitted on campus, effective August 17, 2020 until further notice.  

To limit the number of people present in campus buildings, regrettably family members (including minor children) of students, faculty, and staff are not permitted in campus buildings until further notice.

Read the comprehensive visitor policy for more details.


When making plans to visit Tulane we recommend that you use our Tulane Travel Portal to find the most advantageous rates at New Orleans hotels, motels, or bed & breakfast inns. The “Visit Tulane” link on the portal opens to show several local and national partners that will assist you in arranging your stay in New Orleans. Those locations in the neighborhoods of Uptown, Carrollton and the Garden District are the closest proximity to campus, however the French Quarter, CBD and Mid-City neighborhoods offer added culture to your trip as well.

Driving and Parking

  • Driving directions to campus from the airport
  • Parking: For New Student Orientation and Move-In, a temporary online permit for designated areas will be available from those websites a few weeks prior to the event. For Family Weekend, parking instructions will be included in the online schedule details closer to the event. For other visits during weekdays, you may purchase day use permits from the Parking Services Office on the 1st floor of the Diboll Complex, building 103 on the campus map. Whatever you do, DON'T park in any spot marked "Reserved" at any time(even weekends, holidays and university breaks) because you'll get a ticket and your car could be booted.

Ground Transportation

  • Airport
    From the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport there are several options for ground transportation. Among them, Airport Shuttle is a convenient and economical way to get to and from the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport while supporting student programs at Tulane since $2 of every reservation goes to support student events on campus.
