Tulane is across from Audubon Park, and Gibson Hall is the center of the three main limestone buildings on St. Charles Avenue. Proceed up the center staircase, which leads directly into the Office of Undergraduate Admission.

Follow signs toward the Central Business District. As you enter the downtown area, follow signs to Hwy. 90 Business/West Bank. Exit at St. Charles Avenue/Carondelet Street (do not cross the bridge).

Parking at Tulane

If you're driving to campus, we recommend you plan to arrive early enough to find parking and walk to Gibson Hall from your vehicle. There are six parking spaces in Cowen Circle outside the admission office for daily admission visitors, but parking on and around Tulane's campus can be very limited, especially for larger vehicles. Please note that the only other available spaces on campus are metered; unmarked spaces require annual parking permits every weekday.
