Hassayampa Academic Village is LEED silver certified

Arizona State University’s “green dorm” is one of many green buildings on campus; since 2005, ASU has required LEED certification for all new university-owned or operated construction projects (caveat: “to the fullest extent practicable”). Four years later, ASU is home to 9 LEED buildings (including one platinum and three gold), which serve as everything from lab space to the medical school to student housing. The LEED buildings are only one component of ASU’s larger sustainability efforts, with initiatives for renewable energy (like a solar-powered parking structure), mandated heating/cooling standards, water conservation through drought-resistant landscaping, and composting/recycling programs.

ASU’s Hassayampa Academic Village, LEED silver certified and operating since 2006, is an all-freshman complex that houses 1,900 students in suite-style rooms, with relatively traditional amenities like communal kitchens and study areas. Their buildings include reflective roofs and paving materials, low-flow faucets and toilets, occupancy sensors, windows shades, drought-resistant landscaping and large-scale recycling of construction waste.
