The Tab Newcastle asked for nominations for the smallest box room in the Toon and this is officially Round One. The winners of each round will fight it out for your votes to have the prestigious title of Newcastle's smallest box room. From no desk and bedside table to a Newcastle halls, here are the nominees for Round One.

Where?

Manor Bank accommodation.

Why?

"It's a tiny box room which can feel a bit claustrophobic at times, but I've made it really cosy by putting up loads of photos, posters and fairy lights. I love it because it represents my personality and my mates love having lil photo shoots with this wall as a background."

Megan Farnham, fourth year, Business with HR

Image may contain: Asleep, Room, Interior Design, Indoors, Bedroom, Furniture, Bed, Person, People, Human

Where?

St George's Terrace, Jesmond.

Why?

"Although I am close to Tesco, I'm just not too sure that having to literally climb into my desk chair is worth it."
