Green Building Program

UC San Diego’s Offices of Design & Development Services and Capital Program Management are committed to the design and construction of a sustainable environment. The university follows the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System.

New Buildings and Renovations

  • Design and construct all new buildings and major renovations to a minimum LEED-Silver rating as well as meet the prerequisites of the Laboratories for the 21st Century Environmental Performance Criteria.
  • Design and construct all renovation projects with a cost of $5 million or greater (except acute care facilities) to a minimum LEED-CI Certified rating.
  • Outperform the energy requirements of a California Building Code by at least 20 percent on all new construction and major renovation projects (except acute care facilities) or meet UC's Whole Building Energy Targets.

2020 Highlights

  • UC San Diego constructed sustainable buildings, with nearly 70% of them being LEED Gold certified or higher.
  • Resource Management & Planning led a cross-departmental team to develop Sustainable Building Guidelines to provide consistent guidance on how design and construction teams should apply sustainable building principles and streamline the integration of programmatic campus elements. Examples include the UC San Diego LEED Mastersite, District Energy System and Renewable Energy infrastructure.
  • North Torrey Pines Living and Learning Neighborhood residential areas opened Fall Quarter 2020 and the neighborhood is expected to become the fifth LEED Platinum project on campus. The project received a 10th Annual Sustainable Innovation Award from the USGBC LA Chapter.

LEED-Certified Projects

As of July 2019, UC San Diego has completed 38 LEED-certified buildings and renovations on campus – 3 Platinum, 21 Gold, 8 Silver and 6 certified.
