Young Hall is home to the programs in psychology, behavioral neuroscience, biology, biochemistry, molecular biology, and organic and inorganic chemistry. In 2012 the $20 million project features a 40,000-square-foot addition that created six new large classrooms, eight new teaching labs and eight new faculty research labs, as well as several new common areas to support student-faculty collaborative research.

The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) awarded Gold LEED certification through the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design program to Centre College for its addition to Young Hall, the College’s state-of-the-art science facility in 2012.

Not only is this is the third building on the historic campus in Danville to receive LEED certification, but Young Hall is also the second building at the Gold LEED level. Pearl Hall, a residence hall that opened in 2008 and houses approximately 150 students, was the first building project in Kentucky to receive a Gold LEED rating. A year later, the 50,000-square-foot Campus Center received Silver LEED certification. No other college or university in Kentucky has three LEED-certified buildings.
