Repair crews have been working tirelessly to restore Tulane University campuses after Hurricane Ida. Power line workers, Sodexo and Tulane Dining Services workers, Facilities Services personnel, contract workers and countless others have worked around the clock across campuses to help in the continued process of bringing Tulane back to normal and safe conditions.

Classes will resume online on Monday, Sept. 13. According to the latest university update, Tulane will resume in-person classes on Sept. 27.
