Cypress Hall is the newest addition to the housing inventory at LSU. Two years in the making, the opening of Cypress Hall in fall 2015 was exciting for students and housing staff alike. The building is striving to be the first LEED-certified residence hall on campus, and features three four-story towers for 330 student beds. The ground floor is an open area with classrooms, offices, numerous study spaces, spacious courtyards, kitchen and laundry facilities, a front desk, and a dance studio for kinesiology courses.
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 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,Cypress Hall still reflect the architectural style of LSU with a red-tiled roof, ample indoor-outdoor spaces, and 2-student, suite-bath rooms. The College of Human Sciences & Education Residential College (CHSE) is housed in Cypress Hall where CHSE students not only share a building, but also share experiences in hall programs and activities within their community.

Each 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:
Beryl Langdon, Residence Life Coordinator
Peter Cason, Graduate Residence Director
