The University of New Orleans is pleased to offer Pontchartrain Halls for Conference Housing participants. Our four-bedroom suites consist of four private bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a common living area. Each bedroom has a closet, an extra long twin sized bed, a desk and a chair, and a dresser. Each bedroom also has internet access, cable TV, and central air/heat. One and two bedroom suites are offered on an availability basis only.

Housing accommodations will be located in either Pontchartrain North or South, depending upon availability. Pontchartrain North is our main hall where the Office of Student Housing is located. The North Hall boasts a game room equipped with two pool tables and hosts an Aramark convenience store open daily from 12:00pm to 12:00am. Pontchartrain South has a full community kitchen. Both halls have small study rooms on each floor and a large social lounge with a flat screen television. A laundry room is located on the ground floor of each building.

Pontchartrain Hall's common lounge areas may be utilized by visiting conference groups. Use of these areas is only permitted when conference activities do not conflict with University of New Orleans’ Student Housing residents’ functions. If the lounge is used, the conference is responsible for taking any left over food or waste to the trash rooms. We do try and make every effort to accommodate our conference groups. If your group wishes to reserve other space on campus, we urge you to contact Campus Bookings and Events Management.

Alcoholic beverages may be consumed and stored in resident rooms if all occupants are 21 years of age or older. Drinking is not permitted in hallways, lounges, lobbies, patios, stairways or any public areas of the residence hall. Providing alcohol to individuals under the age of 21 or possession of alcohol by individuals under 21 are violations of criminal law and University policy.

The possession or use of illegal drugs or drug paraphernalia is prohibited in the residence hall and is considered a serious violation of University regulations. The possession or use of illegal drugs will result in immediate removal from the residence hall and may result in further disciplinary action by the University and/or possible legal action by state and local authorities.

Emergency Situations/Fire Alarms

In the event of an emergency, please call the University Police, Pontchartrain North Hall front desk, or Pontchartrain South Hall front desk. The front desk will report facility and mechanical problems, and if necessary contact the Resident Assistant on duty and/or the Residence Hall Manager on duty.

Residents and their guests must evacuate the building and comply with staff instructions any time a fire alarm sounds. Failure to evacuate will result in disciplinary action, including a fine. Tampering with fire and safety equipment or setting off a false alarm is a violation of State Law and University regulations ad will result in University disciplinary action, including fines and removal from the hall and/or possible legal action.

Quiet Hours

For the community atmosphere to develop and flourish, residents are expected to show courtesy to their neighbors at all times. This especially applies to controlling noise.

Quiet hours are enforced from 10:00pm – 9:00am. During finals week, quiet hours are maintained 24 hours a day.


Conference Housing guests are expected to maintain the cleanliness of their occupied suite(s). Trash rooms are located on every floor. Please dispose of your trash accordingly. Cleaning fees may apply.


Your group will be issued access cards to enter the Pontchartrain Hall(s), and to enter your assigned room(s). Keys issued to you are the property of the University of New Orleans and are not to be duplicated or loaned to anyone. Keep your door locked at all times, as the University does not assume responsibility for anyone’s personal property which is stolen, lost, or damaged. If you become temporarily locked out of your room, with proper identification, a Pass Key Request may be completed at either front desk. A Resident Assistant will accompany you to your room to unlock your door.


As guests of the University of New Orleans, the Office of Student Housing will provide guest parking passes to be placed on the passenger side of your dashboard.
