About Dillard University

Since1869, Dillard University has been committed to providing students with a quality four-year liberal arts education. Dillard is a fully accredited private, historically black university. In 2010, U.S. News & World Report ranked Dillard among the nation’s Top 10 HBCUs, based on comprehensive undergraduate studies. Dillard also was awarded a Top 10 Ranking in 2010 for liberal arts schools in the social mobility category by Washington Monthly.

The cornerstone of New Orleans’s Gentilly Community, the university sits on a beautiful and serene 55-acre campus, replete with signature live oak trees and a mixture of historic buildings and modern facilities.

Dillard students go on to some of the best graduate schools in the world. Dillard currently has alumni studying at Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Johns Hopkins and the London School of Economics, among others. Dillard University is also the only university in the United States that is a partner in the Melton Foundation. Dillard students who become Melton Fellows participate in intercultural training, leadership development, and global education through symposia, travel, online activities, project grants, and social service. Host countries include China, Chile, Germany, India and the United States.

Campus information

Located on a 55-acre tract in Gentilly, a residential area of New Orleans, Dillard’s campus is a beautiful setting for academic study and learning. Handsome white buildings, stately live oak trees, large open spaces and sweeping green lawns create a picture perfect college environment. With students and faculty crossing paths each day on foot, the campus is a walker’s delight. From the center of campus, every building is within a five minute walk.

New Orleans is a vibrant, bursting-at-the-seams melting pot of a city that famously inspires indulgence. This is the place to eat, drink, listen to jazz or R&B, take part in a parade, and immerse yourself in the atmosphere. Whether you come for Mardi Gras or the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival or any other reason, a visit to this unique destination is never the same trip twice, but always memorable. Sugar-dusted beignets are a must, cocktail hour is anytime you want it, and the street musicians will have you dancing on the sidewalk.

Accommodation

Occupancy in Dillard's residential units varies from singles to quads, with a majority of the rooms on campus housing two students. All residential units are furnished with standard college furniture (bed, dresser, desk, chair, and bookcase) and each residential unit has Internet access, basic cable television, and local telephone service. Each university apartment has a stove, refrigerator and standard living room furniture, and is accessible through a card-access system. For off-campus facilities (DUAL Apartments), shuttle service to campus is available when the university is open.
