The uptown campus is located in New Orleans on St. Charles Avenue in a historic residential district where architectural styles run from humble Creole cottages to impressive Greek Revival mansions. Located across the street from Tulane is Audubon Park, 400 acres that encompass tennis courts, golf courses, jogging and bicycle paths, horse stables, the Audubon Zoo and some of the most magnificent live oaks you'll ever see. Parking can be difficult around the campus but if you do choose to drive, directions are available.
Visitors to the uptown campus can take part in information sessions and tours offered by the undergraduate admission office, Monday through Friday during most of the calendar year and on Saturday mornings during the school year. Be sure to inquire about special opportunities to sit in on a class, or plan special campus appointments in advance of your visit.
