Princeton Review ranked UC Santa Barbara as the No. 10 Green School in their 2022 Guide to 420 Green Colleges.
Bren Hall, which houses the Bren School of Environmental Science & Management, is among the “greenest” buildings in the nation. It earned triple LEED Platinum certification — the highest sustainability rating possible — from the U.S. Green Building Council.
In fact, our campus has the largest portfolio of LEED-certified buildings in the UC system. Learn more about our LEED-certified Housing properties on our "Housing, Dining & Auxiliary Enterprises Sustainability" link at the bottom of the page.
