Vote for Nottingham’s smallest box room

Small room, big personalities


The poor souls who surrender their social wellbeing for the small, tiny box room in their student house are the heroes we all need – and thus they deserve to be crowned for their heroism.

The Tab Notts are searching for the smallest box room of 2018 in Lenton. This is round one of this tough and brutal competition which will search to crown the bravest of the brave in Lenton, those who live in the UK’s box rooms.

“I’m a short gal so I can fit really well in my tiny bedroom and even in a tinyer bed. No point in turning up to lectures when I have the telly at my feet and a premium account with Netflix”

“I’m in the attic room, I don’t have a real wardrobe, hit my head when I wake up 9/10 times, but it heats up very quickly which is a plus I guess”

“It wouldn’t be so bad apart from the fact that there’s mould and the Wi-Fi is shit so the sense of claustrophobia is only made worse. The wardrobe is built in and the bed is crammed into the only available space (next to the leaky window) all adding to a wonderful living experience”
