My Pad Room Design Contest

My Pad Room Design Contest

Is your room the best on campus?

Do you have a unique design aesthetic? Do you decorate with a burnt orange flair? Do your neighbors compliment you on the comfort and creativity of your room?

Enter your room in the My Pad Room Design Contest, and you could win an iPad mini! See below for rules and regulations.

How to Enter

Entries will be accepted starting September 18 until 8:00 a.m. on October 1, 2013. To enter, email with: 3-6 pictures of your room, the names and UT EIDs of you and all roommates, a contact phone number, and your residence hall and room number. We would also love a short (140 characters or less) description of your room.

DHFS will post the Top Ten Rooms on Facebook on October 3. Voting will be open until October 9, 2013 at 8:00 a.m. to whittle the Top Ten Rooms down to the Final Four Rooms. The four rooms that receive the most likes will go on to the Final Four judging.

The Final Four Rooms will be visited by a panel of judges. The judges will choose the Winning Room based on overall creativity and design.

The Winning Room will be announced on October 18.


The residents of the Winning Room will each receive an iPad mini.

The residents of the other Final Four Rooms (not the Winning Room) will receive $50 in Dine In Dollars.
