U-Challenge Application

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.

NOTE: Be aware that the U-Challenge will only have 4 teams for each level of the competition, for a total of 8 team slots for the competition. A waitlist will be created for those who sign-up after the initial 8 team slots are filled.

. We encourage those who know they want to participate in the challenge to sign-up as soon as possible to increase the likelihood they will receive a spot. The U-Challenge committee reserves the right to close the application period prior to the January deadline.

If more students join the group than is necessary, then the U-Challenge committee members reserve the right to shift extra team embers to another hall/team. When choosing teams/which halls students are assigned to, the principle of “first come, first serve” will apply. If you are applying to be with a specific team, we require that all team members sign up on the same day.

For complete information, download the Utilities Challenge Outline before submitting your application.
