Laurel Hall, formerly known as the Classroom Building, is now the “greenest” building on UConn’s campus after receiving LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) gold certification.

A gold LEED certification means Laurel Hall was designed and built to be as ecofriendly as possible. Some of the factors considered in the gold LEED certification include reduced operating costs, reduced use of energy and water, less waste and reduced greenhouse gas emissions, according to Skanska USA, the company that constructed Laurel Hall.
