About Holmes HallParticipants of the Living Green FYE program will be living in Hamilton Holmes Hall in 2016-17. Holmes Hall opened Fall 2012 and houses 125 residents. The building is named after the late Hamilton E. Holmes, the first African-American student to graduate from the Emory School of Medicine in 1967. Holmes served as the Medical Director at Grady Hospital (Atlanta) until 1995, when he became the Chief of Orthopaedic Surgery at Grady and Associate Dean at Emory SOM.
Holmes Hall is LEED Gold certified. As such, it features a energy monitor where students can view how much water and electricity is being used in the building and compare it with other buildings and times. Energy monitors can be viewed remotely from the web. Come see how much energy is being used in your hall!
