Preparing to Return to New Orleans and Campus

For on-campus residents, we are preparing to reopen the residence halls beginning September 13. With virtual learning taking place that week, this gives you the opportunity to move back as suits your schedule. We are asking all students to be back in time for in-person instruction on September 20, but otherwise you can be flexible.

This flexibility is especially useful for off-campus residents. If you can wait until at least Sept. 13 to return, please consider doing so. Services in the city are still a bit spotty and the power outage maps are not entirely accurate.

New Orleans’ recovery is proceeding quickly, with major progress being reported every day, and we do anticipate that the situation will be much more like it was before the storm by September 20 when we all return to campus together.
