New Orleans Goes Back to School: Resources for Parents

New Orleans’ universities will be welcoming the influx of returning and new students to their doors and into our community. As our New Orleans Bed and Breakfast is just a short streetcar ride to Tulane and Loyola University campuses, we are always glad to greet returning parents and welcome new ones to New Orleans, LA.

Streetcar pick up just outside the Grand Victorian!

Bed, Bath and Beyond allows you to order dorm room or apartment supplies online and pick them up locally, instead of packing and moving all those boxes. Don’t forget sheets, a reading lamp, coffee maker, picture frames and some basic cooking supplies.
Nearest Store:  4410 Veterans Blvd, Metairie, LA 70006  504-454-6930

Whole Foods Market has a “survival” checklist for back-to-dorm basics such as healthy snack and wellness items.
Nearest Store: 600 Magazine Street, New Orleans LA 70115  504-899-9119

Project Green Dorm’s website gives you information on all the top eco-friendly products for college students.  You can also participate in a Dorm Makeover Contest and win prize packages that will set up your college student for the semester.

No car?  Help your incoming student learn to get around town with the New Orleans public transit map.  $1.25 gets you down to the French Quarter, and $3 day passes get you around town all day! Don’t forget our Garden District B&B has the New Orleans Streetcar pick up just right outside our front door!

Dutch Treat? Take them out for one last meal on the parents before you drop them off at the cafeteria.  Coolinary New Orleans during the month of August is offering pre-fix menus from some of the best New Orleans restaurants with these amazing specials: 3-course lunches for $20 or less and 3-course dinners for $35.00 or less!

If you’re packing and moving your progeny down to a university in New Orleans this month, we still have openings for most of the Orientation and Registration weekends.  Check our Reservation Book at Grand Victorian Bed and Breakfast for details and dates.
