JWU has revitalized close to 100 acres of waterfront, providing a stunning natural setting for the Harborside Campus and a range of environmental and recreational benefit to the community.

The campus' newest focal point, the 82,000-square-foot Cuisinart Center for Culinary Excellence opened in spring 2010 and is designed as the nation's first Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified culinary lab. In winter 2010, Grace Welcome Center became the third environmentally sustainable building on the Harborside Campus.
