    Tulane to bus students to Houston for flights home, convert to online instruction due to Hurricane Ida – NOLA.com

    Tulane University said Monday it is closing its campus Uptown and canceling in-class instruction through Sept. 12 due to Hurricane Ida.

    Tulane said it will go to online instruction from Sept. 13 through Oct. 6. In-class instruction will resume after fall break, on Oct. 11.

    The university said it will begin evacuating the campus of all remaining students — graduate, undergraduate, in-residence and off campus — on Tuesday by bus to Houston.

    Students are being asked to bring no more than two pieces of luggage, their computers and valuables.

    “We are establishing a hub in Houston to provide food and lodging at Tulane’s expense for students until they can get flights home.

    Tulane said it was providing more details to students Monday evening, and that students, faculty and staff will be allowed to return to campus Oct. 7-10.

    The university’s decision comes the day after Hurricane Ida tore through the city, decimating metro area’s power infrastructure. Officials have said it will be weeks before electricity is restored.
