Tulane University on Monday opened its new, expanded campus in Biloxi, Mississippi.
The 14,961-square-foot building has an academic area that’s twice the size of the old campus, Tulane said. The facility includes PC and Mac labs, wireless technology and free parking.
The campus has about 45 faculty members and an average enrollment of 450 students.
The new building allows the campus to offer more community workshops, training seminars and testing. Tulane also plans to increase its capacity to offer interactive video-conferencing for academic and community use in the future.
Tulane first opened its Mississippi Coast Campus in 2002. The site offers undergraduate degrees in applied business; homeland security; media arts; applied computing; health and wellness; social science and humanities, as well as a master of liberal arts and a doctorate of social work.
