Bowling Green State University

15 lucky winners will get to pick a room in the residence hall of their choice before room selection officially begins, for themself AND a roommate of their choice!

That's up to 30 winners!


  • Sign the 2023-24 Housing & Dining Agreement between Nov. 29 through Feb. 20, 2023.
  • You must be a RETURNING student applying for the Fall 2023 Semester to qualify.



If you win, you can pick a bed in Falcon Heights, Founders Hall, Kohl Hall, Kreischer or Offenhauer Towers – for yourself and one returning BGSU student of your choice.

The randomized drawing will occur Feb. 21. The Office of Residence Life will reach out to each winner through BGSU email and the phone number on file (make sure you have your voicemail box set up!). If a winner doesn't respond within 24 hours, their right to the prize will be forfeited, and a new winner will be selected.

When contacted, the Office of Residence Life will discuss with each winner how to select a room for themself and their chosen roommate.



Important Details:

  • The additional student who is pulled into the room by a winner must have their housing and meal plan agreement signed and paid their $200 initial payment at the time of the room selection. They must also be a returning student BGSU to qualify.
  • This prize does not offer any discount on the housing rate, and each student assigned to a room through this giveaway will be responsible for the full payment of the room in accordance with their student bill. Cancellations to the agreement by May 1, 2023, will receive a 100% refund and will not be billed. Cancelations after May 1, 2023, will be granted in accordance with the forfeiture schedule.
  • If the winner does not submit an eligible student to be their roommate by the Office of Residence Life deadline, the remaining space will be forfeited.
  • The beds selected by the winner and their roommate must be assigned to the same building. Any student who is assigned to a room through this giveaway does not have the right to their room assignment. If one of the students decides to do a room change into a different room/building or cancels their contract, the vacant bed will open up to standard room selection, and a random roommate may be assigned.
