Our campus is constantly growing and updating to meet the needs of our community, which often leads to the construction of new buildings or large renovation projects to make campus space more functional.

We aim to make eco-friendly design and building choices in campus construction projects and to employ energy saving systems in university buildings.

LEED Certification 

The U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating system is a framework for executing green building design and solutions to make buildings more energy-efficient, produce less waste, and provide a healthier indoor environment for occupants. Northwestern will target LEED gold certification for all new construction and major renovations.
