Pimp Your Dorm Photo Voting Competition

Pimp Your Dorm Photo Voting Competition

Unfortunately due to lack of entries we have had to cancel this competition.  Please see full Terms and Conditions below.

New students: you may already be starting your new life as independent adults, or you might at this very moment be packing the last of your things/stuff with a view to moving to halls in the coming days or weeks. Either way, you may soon come to realise that:

a) If you don’t put your clothes away, no one else will;

b) Toast is not as satisfying when consumed as a meal for the fifth day in a row, and nutrients are rather sparse in noodles;

c) Just because your belongings fit into your suitcase or car, it does not mean that they will fit into your new room, which may, in fact, be smaller than either of those spaces.

Starting college or university is an exciting time and we want to see how you make your new accommodation a home-from-home. Necessity is the mother of invention, as the saying goes, and you might have already discovered new and interesting ways to store your things or decorate your room to make it your own. If you can touch all four walls of your new room at once (if the mood so takes you) then you may have to be very creative with how you store your belongings - and we want to see how you've done just that. How have you made your room not only functional (enabling you to actually lie flat in your bed or sit at your desk) but also awesome?

If you are hankering for some actual nutrition but have already spent your student loan on essentials like a Nintendo Switch or more alcohol than is strictly sensible, enter our photo hashtag competition on Twitter and Instagram. The winners will receive Restaurant Choice Card, which will hopefully help to fill your tummy, bring colour back to your cheeks and (hopefully) stop you getting rickets before your second year.

To enter


Post a photo of your dorm/halls room to Instagram and/or Twitter and include both of the following hashtags #pimpyourdorm and #safestorestudents as this will allow us to track entries.

It’s not mandatory, but to make it easier for us to contact you, we’d recommend you follow @SafestoreLtd on Twitter and/or Instagram.

If your accounts are private we may not be able to see your entries.

How long does the competition run?

Entries will be accepted from the 25th September till 11.59pm, on the 12th of October 2017.

When does voting open?

Voting closes on Friday the 20th of October 2017 at 4pm.  The winner and two runners up will be notified on Monday the 23rd October 2017.

How do I win and what is the prize?

The person with the most likes will win a *£50 Restaurant Choice Gift Card which can be spent in a selection of restaurants across the UK including Pizza Hut, Nando’s, Pizza Express and a few others.
