Eden Hall Campus

Eden Hall Campus is more than Chatham’s campus outside of the City of Pittsburgh. It’s a beacon of innovation and a warm, friendly place that Falk School graduates describe “coming home to.” A living laboratory and an active community. A few other things, too.

A Showcase for Sustainable Solutions

Eden Hall Campus is a nearly 400-acre academic community dedicated to sustainable living and the modeling of sustainable approaches to: energy, water and soil, food and agriculture, and air quality and climate.

Harvesting Rainwater at Eden Hall Campus

At Chatham University’s Eden Hall Campus, we are modeling both innovative and age-old techniques around water management, including rainwater harvesting for collecting and using rainwater.

Awards for Eden Hall Campus and a Chat with the Architects

April 2018 was a big month for Eden Hall Campus in terms of external recognition: The Anne Mallinson ’61 Café and field lab were granted official LEED Platinum ratings, and the campus was recognized nationwide with a 2018 Education Facility Design Award of Excellence from the American Institute of Architects. We spoke with the architecture firm behind Eden Hall’s transformation.

Inside the Aquaculture Lab

Aquaculture—the farming of marine organisms, including fish, shellfish, turtles, and plants—is responsible for more than half of all seafood eaten worldwide, and getting bigger. It’s widely seen as the most efficient way to provide protein to the rapidly growing global population, slated to reach over 10 billion people by 2050. The rapid growth in global aquaculture production has created questions of long-term sustainability in aquaculture. Falk School Aquatic Lab Director Roy Weitzell, Ph.D. is ready. 

A Hub for K-12 Sustainable Education Efforts

Eden Hall Campus was envisioned as a beacon for current and future generations who wish to work toward a more sustainable way of living. Today, Eden Hall Campus delivers this vision through bachelors and masters-level programs and an unparalleled range of opportunities for sustainability-themed experiences for K-12 students in the Pittsburgh area.
