»Energy Management

EV Charging StationsChapman University’s Facilities Management Department is responsible for creating an energy efficient and

environmentally sustainable campus through the development and implementation of energy conservation

practices and programs. While Facilities Management has been given the responsibility to “lead the charge”

in energy reduction strategies, ultimate success will be dependent on how we as individuals use energy. 

Working together as a campus community we can reduce our environmental footprint. 

  • Residence Halls
  • Historic Buildings
  • Additional Energy Management Projects
  • Chapman University currently has submetering installed in two of the seven residence halls on campus. This summer two more buildings will be equipped with submetering systems. Henley Hall has 155 rooms, each housing two students. Henley also boast the university's Eco-Gym, the Chapman Radio Station, a movie room, snack bar, and lounge area. Sandhu Residence Hall has 149 rooms each housing between one and four students. This building is also home to the main dining services for the residence areas, as well as conference center meeting rooms and ballrooms.


    Dorm Energy Consumption

  • Chapman University has revitalized many historic buildings in Old Towne Orange and now uses them for instruction, office space, research areas, and housing. Four of these such buildings make up the historic core of the campus. You can see a sample of their daily energy consumption below. 

    Historic Core Energy Usage

    • Sub-Metering for campus buildings
    • Electric vehicle charging stations
    • Installing energy efficient lighting (LED’s, occupancy sensors, solar powered outdoor lighting, etc)
    • Install automation to control heating and air conditioning
    • Maximize equipment efficiency through preventive maintenance
    • Modify building envelope for energy efficiency
    • Utilize energy efficient and water conserving products
    • Design new building with energy efficiency in mind
