Cypress Hall | Your Future Home

Cypress Hall | Your Future Home

Cypress HallWhether you're coming to Baton Rouge from across the country or just down the road, living on campus gives you total access to all the LSU community has to offer right at your doorstep – academics, tradition, passion, involvement, culture, and more. 

Cypress Hall is the College of Human Sciences & Education's eco-friendly, on-campus undergraduate living facility that opened in fall 2015. Residents of the CHSE Residential College include freshman and first-year students entering the School of Education, School of Kinesiology, and School of Social Work.

Students living on campus consistently have higher GPAs, higher retention to second-year rates, and higher graduation rates than their off-campus peers.

In our residential college, you live with people of the same major or who have similar interests, take classes together – sometimes right in your res hall, walk down the hall to your professor’s office in your res hall, and easily form study groups with your neighbors who are also in your classes. Res colleges make LSU a little smaller for you, and put everything you need right in front of you.
