MODERN, PURPOSE-BUILT SPACE
When it opens in fall 2022, the Fahy Commons Building will advance unique learning experiences via the:
- Office of Community Engagement
- Innovation & Entrepreneurship Program
- Muhlenberg Institute of Public Opinion
- Division of Graduate and Continuing Education
DESIGNED FOR SUSTAINABILITY
The facility will use 70 percent less energy than a typical structure thanks to rooftop solar panels, maximum insulation and efficient heating, cooling and lighting systems. Water usage will be cut in half by low-consumption flush and flow fixtures as well as a rainwater recycling system.
Covered bike storage, shower facilities and electric vehicle charging stations will support low-impact transportation. Outdoors, native landscaping will thrive in the Lehigh Valley environment without chemical fertilizers.
