Cypress Hall meets the needs of 21st century college students while still reflecting the architectural style of LSU and feeling of home with ample indoor-outdoor spaces, and welcoming community spaces. Opened in 2015, Cypress Hall houses 330 students in two-student, suite-bathroom style of rooms.
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, the Greek Amphitheater, and most athletic venues. As the first LEED-certified residence hall on campus, 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. The first 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.
The College of Human Sciences & Education Residential College (CHSERC) is housed in Cypress Hall where students not only share a building, but also share experiences in hall programs and activities within their community.
