Howard B. Fitzpatrick Pavilion

Loyola Marymount University remains comitted to incorporating sustainability into all newly constructed buildings on campus. All new construction or major renovations must be LEED certified or equivalent. Buildings with a sustainable design offer economic, environmental, and societal benefits. Some of these benefits include healthier, natural light which allow students and employees to perform better and improve overall moods.
