TU Fitness Center

The TU Fitness Center, operated by the Department of Campus Recreation, is a part of Tulane University's redevelopment of The Bertie M. and John W. Deming Pavilion. The location, neighboring Tulane’s downtown campus buildings, makes this space a convenient fitness option for Tulanians residing in Deming, the graduate housing complex, and those working or studying at the School of Medicine, School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine, and School of Social Work.
