Tulane School of Architecture (TuSA) is open, post-Hurricane Ida. We are currently operating with remote instruction. In-person instruction will resume on Sept. 27. For more information about Tulane's response and reopening, visit the university's Forward TUgether website. TuSA students should check their emails for important return-to-campus instructions.

The School of Architecture Rome Program is based in Rome and includes a number of field trips throughout Italy with additional time scheduled for individual travel. This year, trips are scheduled for Tivoli, Paestum and Pompeii, the Italian Hill towns, Venice and the Veneto.

Students live and work in a former 17th century convent that is part of Borromini’s St. Agnese church on the Piazza Navona, perhaps the greatest piazza in Rome. Accommodations are double and triple rooms with adjacent studio space.

The curriculum is equivalent to Fourth year and includes design studio, a drawing course, a history of the city course, and a structures/technology course. In addition, an Italian language and culture course is scheduled for the first month.
