Show Us Your Room!

We want to see what you've done with your new digs! Send 3-5 unedited photos of your room to Nicole Faust by midnight on Monday, September 19 to be entered into the Maverick Room Design Contest. No late entries will be considered.

Rooms will be judged based on creativity, use of color, school spirit, theme, and overall design. Winning rooms will win prize packs worth $75!

Please review the guidelines and rules of the contest below:

  • Only current MSU students who have a room assignment on campus or at Stadium Heights are eligible to enter.
  • Permission from each roommate assigned to the bedroom in the photos is needed for participation.
  • Only one entry per bedroom.  Rooms in semi-suites and apartments are treated as separate.  Suitemates and apartment mates are not required to participate.
  • Residents give permission for any images taken during this process to be used indefinitely on Minnesota State University, Mankato’s website and in Residential Life marketing materials for the purpose of providing visual examples of residence hall rooms.  Participants must understand that images posted online may be viewed by anyone.  Residential Life will not reveal the names of the room owners or room numbers in order to protect the privacy of our students.
  • All entries must comply with both University and Residential Life policies.  If policies are violated, disqualification and disciplinary action will be taken.
  • The use of obscene materials or pornography within the photos will result in disqualification.
