Inscription.  
Pedro Arrupe, S.J. Hall is a LEED registered residence hall with a certification goal of gold. Some of the green design strategies features in the building include indoor bicycle parking to support sustainable transportation, a green roof to help reduce stormwater runoff and daylighting to reduce energy consumption.

Window-integrated air temperature controls in each room save energy by curtailing heating and cooling when windows are open.

Sustainable landscape solutions include permeable paving, bioswales and a below-grade, 10,000 gallon cistern, which reduce runoff pollution and contribute to the health of our watershed.

The building also contains a demonstration kitchen, which advances wellness by providing space for hands-on nutrition education.

Georgetown approaches residential living spaces with a mission for the common good, and Arrupe Hall was designed with students in mind. Pedro Arrupe, the "Second Founder" of the Jesuits, said 'our prime educational objective must be to form men and women for others.' Arrupe Hall answers this call through its environmental commitment and student-centered
