A brief description of the institution's living or vegetated roof:

The newest building, the Sallie Tiernan Field House/Parking Garage and NCAA
Soccer/La Crosse Field was completed in 2008. Architects took advantage of the natural slope in Claremont to accommodate underground parking with natural ventilation systems rather than a mechanical system. The field is Scripps’ first green roof and allows for the multiple use of land, while naturally cooling the parking lot. Although the building is not LEED certified it does employ a majority of sustainable materials such as: bamboo flooring, recycled rubber mats, and intensive lighting and air conditioning
controls to minimize energy use.
