U-Challenge (Utilities Challenge)

The U-Challenge will provide students the unique opportunity to gain access to the data about the residence halls here at Texas A&M University. Students will use this information, and draw upon the expertise of the staff from Utilities and Energy Services and Residence Life, to learn about the current proficiency of the buildings and propose ways to increase the buildings’ efficiency to a panel of staff, faculty, and administration. All majors and classifications are encouraged to participate. For more information, download the Utilities Challenge Outline. To apply, complete the U-Challenge Application online.
