Judging Criteria & Tips
- We are looking for rooms that are true representation of how college students live - but keep it clean! You don't have to have fancy decor or the most expensive furnishings and art, we just want to see you express yourself in a way that shows your true, authentic self. This isn't a contest about who can buy to coolest stuff for their room!
- Make sure your room or suite is clean, beds are made, dirty dishes are gone, clutter picked up, laundry put away, etc.
- If you are in an apartment or suite, remember to clean your common areas (including bathroom) and if possible a little decor too!
- We'd love to see how you've creatively organized everything to make the most of your space.
- All styles and personalities are encouraged to apply!
- You may be immediately disqualified if any policy violations are evident so please be sure to review our policies and check with your RA.
