#78 Sustainability at the Shipley Commons

The most sustainable building on campus, the Silver LEED-Certified Commons boasts a rainwater harvesting system, solar panel-covered roof, and locally-sourced construction materials. Passive design features reduce the building's carbon footprint by maximizing the use of natural light and minimizing the reliance on electricity-fueled heating and cooling. Learn more about how Shipley's Dining Services were recently recognized for their efforts to be more sustainable.
