Taylor Hall is one of the four residence halls in The Pentagon, and is part of the Pentagon – Broussard Community, affectionately known as The Pentasard Community by residents.
The Pentagon is one of the best kept secrets amongst the LSU residence halls. Over the past four years, many renovations and improvements have been made to the Pentagon Community. The improvements to the interiors include renovated bathrooms and kitchens in all the buildings, new wardrobes and new paint in the bedrooms, and a new activity center. The new activity center has a 24-hour front desk, a TV common area, study area, new laundry facilities, and a computer lab.
There have also been many improvements to the exterior areas. The courtyard was enclosed with brick & wrought iron gates with card-access, new outside common areas with picnic tables and seating were added, and the landscaping was redone, providing ideal spaces for activities and just hanging out.
The Pentagon Community consists of four three-story buildings (Beauregard, LeJuene, Jackson, and Taylor Halls) and an activity center, and provides LSU students with a unique living experience. The room clusters are accessible via stairwells (we call them stacks) rather than interior halls, providing a more private styled living environment, similar to those found in apartments. The Pentagon is convenient to the “Quad” (where many first-year classes are), Middleton Library, Tiger Stadium, the PMAC & other athletic facilities, as well as the newly renovated The 5 dining hall.
