Jefferson Suites is the second building at the university to receive LEED certification in as many years. The School of Education Building was certified LEED Gold in 2012.

“Jefferson Suites is the first residence hall at UNCG to receive LEED certification. It’s a tangible demonstration of the university’s commitment to sustainability, which is a value in UNCG’s strategic plan,” said Jorge Quintal, associate vice chancellor for facilities. “Achieving LEED Silver certification sets a standard for sustainable design and construction practices on future projects on our campus.”
