Green Campus Tour: Epler Hall and Splash Boxes

Stephen Epler Residence Hall was Portland’s first mixed-use LEED Silver certified building, containing classrooms, offices, and student housing. It features passive heating and cooling systems and energy efficient lighting. Rainwater flows from the roof to river rock filled “splash boxes” in the plaza, then through channels between the brick pavers to planter boxes that filter the water into the ground rather than into overwhelmed storm drains.
