LEED Buildings on campus

All 135+ buildings on the University of Chicago campus require utilities, resulting in greenhouse gas emissions. To address these impacts, the University implemented significant sustainability requirements into the (FS)2 Building Standards, ensuring that sustainability is a top priority of all our campus buildings. As part of the Facility Standards, new construction or major renovation projects over $5 million must be certified by the U.S. Green Building Council with at least LEED Silver. LEED certification aims to improve building performance across several significant metrics, including site selection, energy, water, materials, and indoor environmental quality. Below is a list of the buildings on campus that have achieved LEED certification.
