NYUnplugged was a month-long electricity conservation competition in NYU's residence halls, held during April 2008. The contest, one of the largest of its kind in the nation. It was promoted through a unique informational campaign, a 'street team' of dorm residents, and a website with informational resources and periodic updates of each building's usage.

The contest resulted in an average electricity reduction of 7.3 percent, while Greenwich Hotel, the winning residence hall, managed to cut by 24 percent. In all, NYUnplugged conserved a total of approximately 150,000 kilowatt hours, or 100 metric tons of carbon dioxide.
