The University of Iowa’s Struit Hall has received a LEED gold rating.

Struit Hall primarily serves as a home for UI’s clinical psychology program. It earned the gold rating in part because of its daylighting, rain garden, motion sensor lighting and numerous recycling options.

UI’s Beckwith Boat House, the Sports Medicine Clinic and the State Hygienic Laboratory have also received the LEED gold rating.

LEED gold is the second highest designation for green buildings.
