The U.S. Green Building Council has awarded Stony Brook University’s Nobel Halls a LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold certification verified by the Green Building Certification Institute. LEED is the nation’s preeminent program for the design, construction and operation of high-performance green buildings.

Named for Nobel Prize winners C.N. Yang and Paul Lauterbur, both former faculty members at Stony Brook, Nobel Halls encompasses two buildings with 600 beds in 173,000-square-feet of space. Nobel Halls opened in the fall semester of 2010 and are among only a handful of residence halls in the State University of New York system to receive a LEED certification and the first on the Stony Brook campus.
