Santa Cruz Residence Hall was extensively renovated this past summer and now offers earth-friendly living to UCSB students. This past December we won a Green Award from the regional chapter of the US Green Building Council, and we are seeking a LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) Gold rating through a program administered by the US Green Building Council. Many sustainable measures were incorporated into the project, including energy efficient lighting, new bathroom exhaust fans and motors, double glazed windows, water efficient low-flow and dual flush fixtures, and flooring and finish materials with high recycled content. The graph represents energy savings since the renovation. Together we can make a difference!
