When the fall 2015 semester is complete, American University Washington College of Law will move to a new state-of-the-art legal center at AU's Tenley Campus where our world-class faculty, inspired students, dedicated alumni, and others will come together to champion what matters. Check here for the latest news and information on the campus, buildings, construction, and milestones.
On Oct. 15, Dean Claudio Grossman took a group of more than 30 current American University Washington College of Law students on a hard-hat tour of the new Tenley Campus buildout. Prior to the tour, the students had an opportunity to meet with the Dean and ask him questions about his career and the new campus in an informal atmosphere.
On October 6, American University Washington College of Law faculty and staff joined Dean Grossman on the Tenley Campus tour. The two groups toured new classroom and clinic spaces in the Yuma Building, the academic heart of the new campus, and visited the 6,000 square feet Grossman Hall. After getting a sneak peak of the grand Ceremonial Courtroom in the Warren Building, they continued the tour in the Pence Law Library.
The new Tenley Campus is on target to becoming LEED Gold certified. LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) is a green building certification program that is the recognized standard for measuring building sustainability. To achieve certification, building projects must meet prerequisites and earn points to achieve varying levels of certification ranging from certified to platinum.
What a difference can a few weeks make! Construction on the Tenley Campus is in high gear, and we are proud to announce that the project is entering its final phase. We are sharing some photos we took during August and September, so that you could track our construction progress.
Can you believe we are only 123 days away from our big move to the 8 1/2 acre state-of-the-art Tenley Campus? This summer, AUWCL's programs and centers have been planning and packing for the move. Take a look at some recent photos of our construction site.
