2023 Coog Cribs Room Decoration Competition

Hey, Coogs! The Coog Cribs Competition is back! Do you have the coolest room on campus? Did you and your roommates deck out your living room? Enter the 2023 Coog Cribs Competition to see how you stack up, win prizes, and most importantly, bragging rights.

This year, we have introduced four categories to highlight your creativity. Home Sweet Home

This is a judges’ choice category. We want to see what makes your space uniquely YOU. Submissions will be evaluated based on use of space, use of color, and reflection of personality.

Cougar Pride

“Cougar Pride” is a judges’ choice category. Show us how your room embodies the Cougar Spirit. Whether you have incorporated school colors, Houston memorabilia, or Weeks of Welcome freebies, we want to see rooms that shout UH. Submissions will be evaluated based on commitment to the category, creativity, and use of space.

Best Living Room

“Best Living Room” is a judges’ choice category. Your common area is THE space for your fellow Coogs to hang out. If your living space clearly reflects a team effort and is frequently visited by friends, step into the spotlight. This category is for UH residents who share a common living area (Bayou Oaks, Cougar Place, The Quad, and University Lofts). Submissions will be evaluated based on creativity, use of space, and reflection of group interests.

People’s Choice

Winners in this category will be determined by social media engagement. The People’s Choice submissions will be posted on Student Housing & Residential Life’s Facebook page and Instagram stories (contestants will receive an email when submissions are posted). The room that gets the most combined likes between platforms by 8 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 20 will win.

Submit your room before 11:59 p.m. on Oct. 17. Visit the Coog Cribs webpage to learn more.
