We are pleased to announce the 2017 Campus Cribs Contest for all current residents of University Housing is officially open! Prizes will be awarded in the categories of:

  • Best Tower/Traditional-Style Room
  • Best Suite Room
  • Best Apartment Room
  • Best Greek Village Room

Enter now through September 24! ALL participants of the contest will be entered into a drawing for the chance to win an iPad Mini, Niner Spirit Pack or $100 Target gift card, regardless of whether or not they are selected as a finalist or grand prize winner.

Grand prizes in each category will receive a $1,000 Housing Scholarship, applicable to your Spring Housing bill AND priority pre-lottery room selection on campus in the highly competitive 2018-2019 Return to Campus Living campaign that begins in February. All residents listed as participants in the entry form will be eligible to win the prizes listed. (The grand prize will be split between multiple participants listed on the entry form for a single submission).

Finalists will be selected by a panel of Housing and Residence Life employees based on cleanliness, creativity and space utilization. Finalists will be notified of their status on September 26, and will then be required to schedule a professional photo shoot of their space with Housing Marketing staff, October 2-3. This will be no more than a 45-minute time commitment.

Finalists’ professional photos will be posted on the UNC Charlotte Housing and Residence Life Facebook page on October 9, in an album for public voting. Photo LIKES will be tallied and weighted as one of four final judges. Judges will include a representative from RSA and two Housing staff representatives, who will make their final judgment from the professional photos. Facebook voting will end at 11:59 pm on October 15.

Winners will be announced on October 21 at the 6:30 pm Football game vs. UAB. Photos of the winning rooms will be displayed on the scoreboard during the announcement. Following, all winners will be listed on the Housing and Residence Life website and on social media.
