Rutgers University has several LEED certified and LEED equivalent buildings on campus. Some of these buildings include the Academic Building, Honors College, Sojourner Truth Apartments, Rutgers Business School on Livingston Campus, Richard Weeks Hall of Engineering, the New Jersey Institute for Food, Nutrition, and Health, and many more.
The New Jersey Institute for Food, Nutrition, and Health located on Cook campus boasts one of the state’s largest living biowalls. The living wall grows over 70 species of plants.
Cook’s Market at Rutgers Gardens claims the University’s first green roof. The roof will have many benefits for the environment including: help attract and feed pollinators; reduce and slow stormwater runoff; reduce radiant heat (urban heating effect); and improve availability of food for bats.
