The cold neutral medium (CNM) of the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC), a low-metallicity satellite galaxy of the Milky Way, is studied in this thesis using two unique approaches: First, we analyze HI Narrow Self-Absorption (HINSA) features in the 21 cm line. The relative abundance of the cold atomic hydrogen within molecular clouds in the LMC is found to be similar to that of the Milky Way. Second, we conducted a large ATCA 21 cm absorption survey across the LMC. The CNM fraction of all HI gas in the LMC is found to be lower than the Milky Way.
