Tulane continues to conduct extensive damage assessments on all the universitys campuses post-Hurricane Ida as part of the process of recovery. Power has been restored to parts of the city of New Orleans and some campus buildings. All buildings remain locked to everyone but essential personnel at this time as emergency and repair crews continue their work. 

However, the Lavin-Bernick Center for University Life is accessible to Tulane faculty and staff from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Sunday to allow individuals to charge their devices, use Wi-Fi and cool off.
