Photo Description:

The CSUSM University Student Union (USU) is LEED Gold certified, based on LEED Green Building Design and Construction 2009 New Construction edition. LEED, which stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is a rating system that evaluates environmental performance to provide a definitive standard of a “green building”. All new CSUSM buildings are built to at least LEED Silver standards. By designing and building to LEED standards, the USU and all of our LEED buildings have a number of sustainability benefits, including reduced construction waste, increased recycled content, lower long-term operating costs, efficient water and energy systems, and improved indoor air quality, to name a few. The other CSUSM LEED buildings are: Parking and Commuter Services (LEED Gold), Student Health and Counseling Services (LEED Gold), Social and Behavioral Sciences Building (LEED Silver) and the Sports Center will be LEED certified.
