Penn State - Harrisburg will hold a dedication ceremony on February 6th for their new four-story, $10 million dollar LEED-certified residence hall.

Building 10,000, as it is called, is the only LEED-certified residence hall of all the 19 campuses to make up the Penn State Commonwealth Campus System.

Building 10,000 began housing students in 2010 but was just awarded a silver level certification for its use of recycled materials, such as steel, and other energy-efficient features.

The four story building can house 100 students and was designed by SMP Architects, which has created buildings on the Penn State Brandywine and Penn State Berks campuses as well.

“It's a building that Penn State can be proud of,” Penn State Harrisburg Director of Housing and Food Services Craig Cook said.
