Acadian Hall is a study in excellence. From the beautiful patio and fountain to the elegant lobby, Acadian Hall offers its residents outstanding accommodations. Students can relax, watch TV, play the piano, do homework, and participate in the many programs and events in Acadian Hall’s two large common areas.
Acadian Hall houses the Tiger Bridge Program, an initiative offered jointly by Louisiana State University and Baton Rouge Community College (BRCC). This invitation-only program provides a unique living-learning opportunity for students who desire to attend and participate in the collegiate experience, but who just miss meeting the published LSU admissions standards. The program is designed to provide students with the collegiate experience while providing resources to help them successfully transfer to LSU after they obtain 30 hours from BRCC in their first year with a 2.5 GPA. For more information on the Tiger Bridge Program, visit www.tigerbridge.lsu.edu.
All Tiger Bridge students will live on the LSU campus in Acadian Hall. Designed to provide a seamless transition into college life at LSU, the Tiger Bridge Program offers a living-learning community where students will share common academic and student life experiences that will contribute to success at LSU.
Located in the heart of campus, Acadian Hall is a favorite for students because of its convenient location right next to The 459 Commons dining hall, a short walk to the Student Rec Center, and a short walk to the academic core of campus. Students also love Acadian’s storage; Acadian Hall features 2-student, hall bath rooms with large walk-in closets and large vanity areas in rooms in “New Acadian.” “New Acadian” references the large wing where the vast majority of students rooms are located that was added on to the original building, “Old Acadian.” Only rooms 100-118 and 200-218 are located in “Old Acadian,” and those rooms differ from the rooms in “New Acadian.” See below for videos and layouts of the rooms.

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 resident director (GRD), a grad student who also lives and works in the hall. These two people lead the team of resident assistants (RA) who live on each floor and help you adjust to life on campus, get connected to resources, and host educational and fun programs. Tiger Bridge also has a professional coordinator for all your Tiger Bridge needs. Here are your geaux-to people in Acadian Hall:
