Student Life

Housed in historic Richardson Memorial Hall, the Tulane School of Architecture is comprised of approximately 350 undergraduate and graduate students. It is a close-knit community of makers and thinkers working together to develop their skills as designers. Faculty members are knowledgeable and accessible, with a genuine interest in student achievement and experience. Small, engaging classes allow students to receive personalized attention crucial to the creative process. 

"You learn a lot very quickly.  There is a large amount of camaraderie among the years, creating a collaborative, supportive environment.  The work is tough and the nights can be long, but you will soon learn to appreciate all that you can accomplish – plus hanging out with your friends at 5:00 in the morning in studio can yield some great memories."

- Michael Kahn, M.ARCH Candidate, 2013

While Tulane is a challenging university, it is both competitive and supportive. The School of Architecture pairs first-year students with upperclassmen mentors to introduce them to the school’s unique culture. Students also receive support from studio groups and a dedicated undergraduate academic advisor. 

Several student-run groups provide the opportunity for leadership within the larger School of Architecture community. 

The best snapshot of student life at the School can be found in theCharette, a student-edited publication.
