Tulane University Weatherhead Hall

At Tulane University’s historic Uptown campus, Weatherhead Hall features the newest addition to campus housing. Weatherhead Hall is designed with an intellectual life in mind and is supported by the Tulane Honors Program. All residents are required to participate in one or more building-wide committees, each of which are devoted to strengthening a different area of intellectual life both in the honors community and throughout Tulane. The entire design of the building aims to provide key spaces to enrich this academic focus and community.

The two dormitory buildings are 4 and 5 stories respectively with a connecting bridge. The site has been carefully designed around a protected live oak in-between the two buildings. In addition, the project was designed and built with sustainability in mind and has been Certified LEED Gold.

Weatherhead Hall received an Honor Award for Excellence in Architecture for a New Building from The Society for College and University Planning and The American Institute of Architects’ Committee on Architecture for Education.

Other projects at Tulane University include the Environmental Science Building, fast track restorations following Hurricane Katrina, Turchin Stadium, the Primate Research Center Nursery Building, Flower Hall and the forthcoming Yulman Football Stadium.
