Student Room Photography Contest

Carolina Housing is updating the photography on our website and our maps, and we want you to participate! Send us a picture, picture collage, or short video of your residence hall room and get a chance to have your room featured on the UNC Housing website and UNC Campus Map! The contest will run from Friday, February 25 to Friday, March 10. You may submit by emailing your entry to housing.unc.ch@gmail.com.

After the deadline, Carolina Housing staff members will vote on the top choices for each hall. The winners will each receive a quarter zip sweatshirt, and the grand prize winner (randomly drawn from the winning candidates) will receive an Apple Watch. All winners will be notified by Sunday, March 12.

Remember these rules while submitting entries:

  1. Please submit an interior photo, photo collage, or video of your residence hall room – whatever you believe best showcases your room.
  2. Don’t send us pictures that violate the Community Living Standards.
  3. If you submit a picture, you agree to let two UNC Housing professional staff members ENTER YOUR ROOM OVER SPRING BREAK with a professional photography crew from Campus Bird and photograph your room.
  4. Once you email us your submission, we will email you a photography waiver. You must sign this waiver in order to participate and give us permission to photograph your space. Your entry will not be considered if this waiver is not returned by the deadline.
  5. Please make sure your space is prepared for photographing before you leave for Spring Break in order for us to efficiently and effectively photograph your room.
  6. Only one (1) entry per person is allowed, however, if you are in a roommate pair and you win, both you and your roommate will receive the prize(s).
  7. All questionable behavior and actions during contest participation are subject to review by Department of Housing and Residential Education Staff and we reserve the right to disqualify a contestant at any time.
