Student Life's Oldest Tradition

The 27th Annual Chili Cook-Off will be held on Saturday, April 2, 2016 from 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm in Houston Drive (street between student parking lot and the UHCL buildings). The Cook-Off is a family-friendly event where students, faculty, staff, and the community can come to campus and enjoy chili, games, and FUN. Kid friendly amusements will be available as well as various food and drinks. And let's not forgot about the enormous amount of chili available for tasting!

Chili Cook-Off is an outdoor event and will not be held if there is inclement weather.

Free Admission

Tasting Kits:

$4.00 with UHCL ID
$5.00 without a UHCL ID

There will be tasting kits on sale at the Student Life booth at the official entrance of the Cook-Off. Event patrons are encouraged to purchase a chili tasting kit. Using the kits, chili tasters will be given three cups to sample various forms of chili, and can then vote on their favorite chili. Their important vote will determine which team will awarded the 1st Place, 2nd Place, 3rd place for best chili! Tasters will also be given an opportunity to vote for Best Booth, Popular Vote, and the Student Government Association Award. The Spirit Awards are chosen by a panel of secret judges.

Join a Team!

All members of the UHCL community are encouraged to participate in this long-standing tradition. The teams can be a combination of students, faculty, staff, alumni, and their family and friends (the majority of the team must consist of UHCL members). Applications are now available. There is an application fee of $30.00 (checks made payable to UHCL). Deadline to submit the Team Entry packet along with the application fee.
