Crowsnest Hall is a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver certified building. It was designed and constructed to meet a greenhouse gas emissions budget of no more than 100 kg of CO2 emissions per square meter each year. A composting program launched in Crowsnest Hall during the 2016/17 academic year. Living on campus with easy access to on-site secure bike storage and transit routes provides a great opportunity to reduce transportation emissions. The use of low-emitting materials and a dedicated outdoor air system provide excellent air quality and enhance the health and comfort of the living spaces within Crowsnest. Crowsnest Hall also features a low-maintenance, edible landscape with apple trees, blueberry bushes and Saskatoon berry bushes.
