Campus Center & Student Residence

Green design along the Emerald Necklace

Energy Efficiency

  • Large exterior windows reduce daytime energy use by providing abundant natural light to dorm rooms and public spaces


  • The building is constructed with steel, which offers greater flexibility for future interior reconfiguration and has over 85% of recycled content.
  • Granite curbing used for landscape and sidewalk edging was quarried in Westford, Mass. This and other locally-sourced materials reduce the need for transportation and carbon impact.

Water Efficiency

  • Low-flow toilets and urinals installed in all bathrooms
  • Bathroom faucets are controlled by automatic sensors

Reduced Urban Heat Island

  • Terrace roof is planted with a sedum mix requiring maintenance only once or twice a year. The green roof provides a habitat for insects and other organisms, reduces stormwater runoff, and reduces heat island effect.
