Travel Resources


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 & Parking

Driving directions to campus from the airport

Parking: For special events that parents are likely to attend such as Fall Move-In, Spring Move-Out, and Family Weekend, parking instructions will be included in the event details from the sponsoring department.

If you visit campus during weekdays at other times, you may purchase one-day or multi-day parking passes:

  • In the Campus Services office in the Lavin-Bernick Center, Suite 107. One-day or multi-day passes are valid in all parking zones except for Reserved All Hours spaces and metered spaces.
  • Online at parking.tulane.edu. This option allows you to print your parking pass from anywhere.
  • Via the parking pay station located on the ground floor of the Diboll Complex and selecting "Stall 50."

Please DON'T park in any spot marked "Reserved" at any time (even weekends, holidays, and university breaks) because you'll get a citation, and your car could be booted. Failure to comply with parking rules may result in a citation. For additional parking information, call (504) 865-5441 or visit the Visitor Parking website.
