Does Tulane University have power?

Like many areas in New Orleans and south Louisiana, the entire campus is without power. Students who have decided to self-evacuate have until 5 o'clock Wednesday afternoon to leave the campus. University officials say the decision to evacuate was unexpected, but was made quickly due to the widespread power outages.

Tulane University students evacuating to Houston

KPRC 2 has learned nearly 1,800 students are arriving on Tuesday and will stay at both the Hyatt Regency and Marriott Marquis. More students are expected to arrive Wednesday.

“I never thought in a million years I would be off school for five weeks off campus because of a hurricane,” Tulane freshman Annabeth Cohen told KPRC 2 as she rode the bus to Houston on Tuesday.

Cohen, a Kentucky native, moved into her dorm room about two weeks ago.

“I can’t believe we are leaving. I feel like we have only been there two weeks and it was the best weeks of my life. It’s pretty sad,” she said.

Cohen rode out the Category 4 hurricane at times in the hallway of her dorm. While generators kept the lights on through the storm she said the power went out Monday.

Cohen said there is damage to some parts of the campus and the dorm rooms.

“A lot of my friends had really bad water damage and flooding in their room and water coming in through the windows or from the floor above them,” said Cohen.

The focus for Cohen and many other exhausted students is on those who lost the most.

“Hopefully, we can come together as a community and help everyone else in Louisiana who wasn’t as lucky as us,” she said.

School is set to reopen in mid-October.

If students are not able to make it home from Houston, Tulane University is finding temporary accommodations until the school reopens.

University President Mike Fitts tweeted pictures Monday night saying he met with students before their departure.

Fitts added: “We are continuing to take all of the necessary steps to keep our campus and community safe.”

Right now, all of Orleans Parish is without power and it’s impacting the sewage system. It’s expected to take weeks to restore and repair.

The football coach for Louisiana State University said LSU students have already arrived in Houston. The coach posted this picture of the team practicing at NRG on social media saying, “Our team is safe in Houston preparing to give our fans a great game.”

The team is getting ready for their game against UCLA on Saturday. They’ll leave Houston for Los Angeles on Thursday.

Once students from Tulane arrive, Tulane University is asking students to make travel arrangements out of Houston within the next two to three days. Those who are unable can request to stay with staff in Houston until the university reopens.

At this point, they’re set to return in October.

Tulane University closing for 2 weeks, evacuating remaining students to Houston

WDSU New Orleans 01 September, 2021 - 01:10am

The latest breaking updates, delivered straight to your email inbox.

Tulane University will be closing for two weeks and evacuating their remaining in-residence and off-campus students to Houston beginning Tuesday.

Hundreds and hundreds of students boarded buses Tuesday with luggage in hand being bused away due to the conditions brought upon by Hurricane Ida. The university is expected to be without power for some time.

All students were asked to back only two pieces of luggage, their computers and valuables.

Tulane University said it is establishing a Houston Hub to provide food and lodging at the university’s expense for students until they can get flights home.

Emergency funds will be available for students who need financial support. Those who need assistance are asked to contact the Dean of Students.

The university said in a release: "Due to catastrophic transmission damage to the city power grid, all of Orleans Parish is currently without power. Other pieces of critical infrastructure, including services associated with Sewerage & Water Board and the supply chain and critical labor for the region, may be impacted for several weeks. Like all in the region, Tulane experienced a range of damage that requires repair."

Tulane will remain close and has canceled all classes through Sunday, Sept. 12. Those classes will be rescheduled at the end of the semester. Classes will resume online only Sept. 13 through Wed. Oct 6.

On Oct. 11, following the fall break, in-person classes will return to campus.

The university added, "If the city’s return to normalcy is accelerated and circumstances permit, we may have the opportunity to bring our community back to campus sooner. More details will be shared in coming weeks, and future communications will address expectations for staff during this time."
