Earth Week: University Center Sustainability Tours

Join the Tish­man Envi­ron­ment and Design Cen­ter and the New School Build­ings for a spe­cial Sus­tain­abil­i­ty Tour of The New School Uni­ver­si­ty Cen­ter.

The Uni­ver­si­ty Cen­ter is a 16-sto­ry, approx­i­mate­ly 375,000 square-foot build­ing locat­ed at the inter­sec­tion of 14th Street and Fifth Avenue in Man­hat­tan. The build­ing has 230,000 square feet of aca­d­e­mic space on the first sev­en floors and 135,000 square feet for a 600-bed dor­mi­to­ry on the remain­ing nine floors, pro­vid­ing space for all aspects of cam­pus life.

Sus­tain­abil­i­ty has and con­tin­ues to be a core val­ue at The New School, and it is incor­po­rat­ed into var­i­ous aspects of the Uni­ver­si­ty Center’s design, con­struc­tion, and oper­a­tion. The Uni­ver­si­ty Cen­ter was award­ed a U.S. Green Build­ing Coun­cil LEED Gold cer­ti­fi­ca­tion for its out­stand­ing focus on sus­tain­abil­i­ty. The Uni­ver­si­ty Cen­ter con­tin­ues to be among a select few build­ings in New York and one of the few aca­d­e­mic build­ings across the coun­try with this hon­or.
Tours will be guid­ed by Erik Eib­ert, Assis­tant Direc­tor for Sus­tain­able Ini­tia­tives. Tours will leave from the lob­by of the Uni­ver­si­ty Cen­ter at 3pm and 4pm. 

This event is part of Earth Week at The New School, spon­sored by the Tish­man Envi­ron­ment and Design Cen­ter.
