Tulane sets sights on new dining hall design

Plan calls for increased capacity from the current 520 seats to 1,000 seats.

June 11—Tulane University, in New Orleans, will replace its Bruff Commons with a new dining hall, set to be completed in fall 2015.

The university has renovated Bruff multiple times since it was constructed 49 years ago, most recently in 2010. However, dining services officials say the university has outgrown the space so a new dining hall is in the pre-design stages. Dining Services plans to increase the capacity of the new dining hall from the current 520 seats in Bruff to 1,000 seats.
