UC Merced will continue to be an example of how to conserve resources

UC Merced's campus expansion project is committed to expanding access to the university in a way that minimizes impacts on the natural and built environments, encourages compact land development, and provides immediate and long-term environmental benefits to the campus and the community for generations to come.

Built on a foundation of sustainability leadership

UC Merced has created a long-range vision for a vibrant campus, based on sustainable planning and design principles. From energy-efficient buildings to waste-reduction strategies, UC Merced’s leadership has received state, national and international recognition. The Merced 2020 Project will build on that foundation as the campus adds an array of LEED Gold certified facilities.     Please click here to learn more...
