Cypress Hall is the newest addition to the housing inventory at LSU. Two years in the making, the opening of Cyress Hall in fall 2015 is exciting for students and housing staff alike. The building will be the first LEED-certified residence hall on campus, and will feature four-story towers for 330 student rooms. The ground floor will be an open area with classrooms, offices, kitchens, laundry facilities, front desk, and other amenities for residents.
Located on the west side of campus by The Enchanted Forest, Cypress Hall offers residents easy access to The 5 dining hall, The Quad, Middleton Library, and the Greek Amphitheater. Cypress Hall is a leader in energy-efficiency as a LEED-certified building with indoor-outdoor learning spaces, storm water recovery systems, interior bike storage rooms, energy-efficient mechanical systems, sustainable finishes, and solar demonstration systems.
While brand new and meeting the needs of 21st century college students, the building will still reflect the architectural style of LSU with a red-tiled roof, ample indoor-outdoor spaces, and 2-student, suite-bath rooms. For fall 2015, the new College of Human Sciences & Education Residential College (CHSE) will be housed in Cypress Hall for students majoring in the college’s School of Education, School of Kinesiology, or School of Social Work. CHSE students not only share a building, but also share experiences in hall programs and activities within their building and community.

StaffEach building/community on campus has a built-in support system for you. A residence life coordinator (RLC) is a master’s level professional who lives and works in your community. The RLC supervises a graduate residence director (GRD), a grad student who also lives and works in the hall. These two people lead the team of resident assistants (RAs) who live on each floor and help you adjust to life on campus, get connected to resources, and host educational and fun programs. Here are your geaux-to people in Cypress Hall:
- TBD, Residence Life Coordinator
- TBD, Graduate Residence Director
