LEED Gold Buildings

All new buildings are designed to achieve LEED Gold standards. The 4 LEED Gold buildings feature:

  • Native, drought-tolerant plants
  • High efficiency energy systems and water fixtures
  • Forest Stewardship Council certified wood products
  • Building products made locally, of recycled materials and with a low VOC content  

Our Facilities Master Plan outlines how Seattle University integrates sustainable design principles into our buildings and grounds. .
