Cal State Fullerton is the proud home to a growing collection of green buildings, showcasing the latest advances in sustainable construction. 

We follow best practices from the United States Green Building Council (USGBC), which administers Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED), a program that recognizes best-in-class building strategies and awards different levels of green-building certification. To date, two Cal State Fullerton buildings have secured LEED certification:

Five additional buildings meet LEED Silver equivalent standards:

  • Children’s Center
  • Eastside Parking Structure
  • University Police Station
  • Fullerton Arboretum Visitor’s Center
  • Steven G. Mihaylo Hall 

Going forward, our Sustainability Master Plan calls for all new buildings or major renovations to meet or exceed LEED Silver equivalent standards.
