University of Colorado at Denver is constructing a first-year student housing on campus; which in contrast, is subtracting from the urban areas’ green space and subjectivity may challenge sustainable performance. Denver’s Auraria Campus has administered sustainability through natural and physical resource strategies to urge conservation of all the resources used on campus. Within this research, energy use intensity of all campus buildings will be related to each unit of floor area. The campus will be rated using the Sustainable Tracking, Assessment and Rating System (STARS) administered by the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE). The hosts of this campus are CU Denver, MSU Denver and CCD. The efforts of energy efficiency in buildings across Auraria Campus have been gaining effort to become “net zero” buildings. In the event of this construction on-campus, there is persistence to develop long term trends of sustainability based on mathematical methods and multi-criteria assessments such as STARS. The campus is restricted to its urban surroundings, growing in population and units of floor area, and requesting attention for sustainable action. STARS is used to evaluate the campus’ annual site energy consumption compared to the minimum performance threshold per gross square foot and per Fahrenheit degree day, as well as the reduction of total source energy consumption
