About named building

The Charles David Keeling Apartments have the prestige of being UC San Diego’s first Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) platinum certified building. In addition to several sustainable building features, the Keeling Apartments have a 49 kilowatt rooftop solar array and an on-site grey water recycling system for irrigating the landscape. Additionally, the apartments feature a green roof, which absorbs rainwater, provides insulation to reduce heating and cooling costs, and creates new wildlife habitats. The Keeling Apartments are named after Charles David Keeling, a former professor at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography whose measuring of carbon dioxide first brought the idea of the "greenhouse effect" and global warning to the international scientific community. Keeling Apartments are split into 3 buildings with each building providing top-tier living spaces for Revelle's 2nd year undergraduate community.
