Buildings and Grounds

Hartwick boasts an impressive array of green buildings and other features. Golisano Hall, an academic building, is the only LEED-certified building in Otsego County. Hartwick's Pine Lake Environmental Campus is home to two natural buildings: the Strawbale House, a multi-use structure, and the Cob House, which houses two students. Arnold Rain Garden is located on the academic plateau of the main campus. Finally, a 10-kW photovoltaic system provides about half the electricity used annually in the Robertson Lodge at Pine Lake.
