University Housing’s annual Wolf Den Challenge is back! Residents have the chance to win fun prizes and the opportunity to be showcased on the department’s social media channels. Prizes include gift cards and University Housing gift baskets. Participants can submit three to five photos of their room or apartment living room.

There are four contest categories: Home Sweet Home, Wolfpack Pride, Best Living Room and People’s Choice. Residents may enter into as many categories as they wish as long as they agree to the Wolf Den Challenge Guidelines. Individuals can only receive one prize pack, but can win in both the bedroom and living room categories. Each student in a roommate pair or living in the same apartment wins an individual prize for their entry.

Home Sweet Home, Best Living Room and Wolfpack Pride winners will be decided by a panel of judges who will score the submissions based on creativity, commitment to the theme and use of space. The Home Sweet Home category submissions will be evaluated based on use of space, use of color and reflection of personality. Show off what makes your space uniquely YOU. The Best Living Room category will be evaluated based on use of space and reflection of apartment resident interests. Wolfpack Pride is evaluated based on how much your room reflects Wolfpack colors and spirit. 

The People’s Choice category will be decided based on social media interactions. All of the People’s Choice rooms will be posted on University Housing’s Facebook page and Instagram stories. The room that gets the most combined likes between platforms by 8 a.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 21 will win.

The deadline to enter is 11:59 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 16. Entries cannot be accepted or edited after that point. Students must read the rules, terms and conditions of the contest before entering. Winners will be announced on Friday, Sept. 23. Good luck, and happy decorating!
