The campus of LSU is nationally renowned for its sprawling, picturesque southern setting. Lush university landscaping composed of abundant azaleas, crepe myrtles, ligustrums and camellias is shaded by 2100 stately oaks that tower above the 2000 acre campus. The 250 campus buildings are consistently designed with tan stucco walls, red-tiled rooftops and extensive porticoes reminiscent of Italian Renaissance style architecture. The beauty of our university is truly a site to behold; so, when guests often ask for our recommendations, we simply suggest a stroll through our campus. Explore and enjoy!
