New College House project was the first signature residential building on the University of Pennsylvania's campus specifically designed and built to maximize the College House experience. It was built to accommodate the intellectual, cultural, and social activities that have become the hallmark of the University of Pennsylvania's College Houses.

"Featuring green roofs, a private enclosed courtyard, an in-House dining hall, a multimedia room where films and other presentations can be shown, seminar rooms with the latest in instructional and collaborative technology, music practice and performance rooms, and a living room gathering space, New College House provides a comfortable and safe living experience for Penn undergraduates while serving them with the academic and social connections every College House enjoys: a full complement of faculty-in-residence and a staff of Graduate Associates and Resident Advisors to provide entrée into the life of the University and the benefits of our urban campus," New College Housing.
The New College House has received LEED Silver Certification, as it was designed and planned for, for new construction through the US Green Building Council. It has a large open landscaped lawn area and a series of green roofs with a below grade cistern to manage the storm water. The sustainable design of the New College House also includes low-flow and low consumption plumbing fixtures, high-efficiency lighting fixtures and many other features that enable the building to be as efficient as possible.
