Will classes be held on campus in Fall 2020?

Tulane University will resume in-person classes starting August 19 and is condensing the Fall 2020 semester to allow students to leave campus for Thanksgiving Day. While exact plans and protocols are still taking shape, we do know that the health and safety of our students, staff, and faculty is of utmost importance. The University recently created the Return to Campus website that outlines important new guidelines, including Public Health Strategies that we will all implement, such as wearing face coverings, testing and contact tracing, daily symptoms checking and physical distancing. Additionally, classrooms are being retrofitted to maintain physical distance between students and for the technology to function more flexibly as many courses, seminars and studios will need to meet different needs, such as being presented to students both remotely and through in-person modes. New exterior classrooms are being built and other exterior spaces will be prepared to serve as safe education resources. Your faculty instructor will provide specific expectations for their courses. The Tulane School of Architecture faculty listing is here: https://architecture.tulane.edu/about/faculty

Outside of classes, the Tulane School of Architecture faculty and staff will be working partially remotely and partially in-person to de-densify the building. Faculty and staff are available via the email and phone numbers listed on our website. General questions about school operations can sent to architecture@tulane.edu.

How is Admissions affected by COVID-19?

There are no tours of the school, but our Admissions Team is available to discuss any questions. Take a virtual tour on our Visit page.

For students looking to apply to our graduate programs, we are holding a Graduate Open House on Friday, Oct. 23, 2020. Applications are due Friday, Jan. 15, 2021.

For admitted students, feel free to reach out to your program director if you have any questions or concerns.

Where do I go for questions regarding technology and the Fabrication Labs?

Tulane University Information Technology has set up a special page with links and resources to support remote learning here: https://it.tulane.edu/its-pandemic-emergency-preparedness-solutions-and-actions

For specific Tulane School of Architecture questions related to technology, contact Victor Garcia at vgarcia@tulane.edu. We also have a technology guide for Tulane School of Architecture students

The Fabrication Labs (DOL, 3D Print Lab, and Millhaus) are open to commercial operations during Summer 2020. All questions regarding the DOL/3D Print Lab/Millhaus, contact Nicholas LiCausi at nlicausi@tulane.edu.

How can I help current students with financial support?

We are working with students who have difficult personal circumstances that would make leaving campus a challenge or will face complications in online learning once they return home. In response, we have set up the Tulane Student Emergency Aid and Assistance Fund to address current student needs.
