Best Room on Campus Competition

The Office of Residential Life and Housing (ORLH) hosts an annual competition during the Winter semester to find the best-decorated room on NSU's campus! Show off your room for a chance to win prizes and earn the title of the best room on campus. Finalists will also be entered for the opportunity to appear in NSU publications including Admissions marketing, the ORLH web site, the Residential Living Guide and on-campus housing brochure, and more!


Applications for the 2020-2021 Competition are now closed! Please stay tuned for information on next year's winners.


How to Enter

It's simple! Complete a Best Room Agreement form and attach up to four (4) photos of your living space.
  • Submissions must be made between Monday, February 22, 2021 and 5PM on Monday, March 8, 2021.
  • All rooms entered in the contest need to comply with Residential Life and Housing policies. For more details on these policies check out the Residential Living Guide.
  • A few general things to remember, as far as policies go, are: no candles, no weapons, no alcohol bottles used as decorative containers, and no pets other than fish. 
  • In addition to complying with Office of Residential Life and Housing policies, all rooms must be “parent-appropriate.” There should be no obscenities, drug or alcohol references, or any other offensive content.  If you have to think twice about whether something is appropriate, it probably shouldn't be submitted!
  • For safety and security, avoid any personal identifiers that would allow viewers to be able to locate your room number, floor, or exact location.
  • All residents who live on-campus are permitted to participate, except those who work for the Office of Residential Life and Housing, such as Resident Assistants and Front Office Staff.
  • You may submit up to four photos – all which would be displayed on the official Housing Instagram page (@HousingNSU), however only the “likes” on the photos will count towards the contest.
  • Each resident is permitted to make a submission, even if their suite-mate also submits.
  • NO digital editing of any photographs.
  • All voting will take place on the Housing Instagram Page (@HousingNSU) between March 15th-18th, 2021.
  • Once the submissions are uploaded onto the Instagram page on March 15th, voting will officially take place.
  • Do not advertise/reveal your identity via comment and/or tag under the official submission posts; failure to abide by this rule may result in disqualification. However, you may advertise through your own Instagram Account.
  • Winner(s) announced on March 19th via Instagram Live and Instagram Post.
