Papillon Apartments
Papillon Apartments



The Papillon is a Tulane University-owned property, utilized solely for the purpose of housing Tulane Upper Class and Graduate Students.  

University housing for graduate students is limited and is allotted on a first come, first served basis.  This off campus housing is solely for Graduate Students.  Although the Papillon does house  a majority of the Tulane Housing and Residential Life staff; no other Tulane Faculty or staff member can apply.  

Tulane's graduate programs award their own scholarships, fellowships, and assistantships. Contact the graduate programs for information on the availability of funds and how to apply. Most doctoral students receive a fellowship or assistantship consisting of a stipend plus a tuition waiver. Stipends are competitive and the cost of living in New Orleans is reasonable.

Financial Aid Office calculates a student's eligibility for any additional federal aid to supplement awards made by the graduate programs. See the Introduction to Graduate Student Financial Aid at Tulane and A Comprehensive Guide for Graduate Financial Aid for more details at
