The hot tub is gone, but Josh Rosen’s apartment is still a college student’s dream

Monday August 8th, 2016

When you picture a UCLA student’s room, you probably imagine something exactly like Bruin quarterback Josh Rosen’s setup. 

The hot tub didn’t last long, but Rosen’s new off-campus apartment he shares with two UCLA walk-ons (who are also his frat brothers) still sounds pretty sweet. SI’s Pete Thamel got a look inside for a story on Rosen in this week’s magazine.

“Is this the frattiest room you’ve ever been in?” Rosen asked Thamel. We don’t get the answer, but here’s what he found: 

• The living room “is lit exclusively by white Christmas lights.”

• A sign indicates the house rules for darts: “MISS DARTBOARD—MUST TAKE A SHOT OR SHOTGUN A BEER”

• He’s got a disco ball.

• His roommates have empty bottles of 68 different beers on display. Yes, they drank them all. 

• The couch is what you’d expect: “Can you dry-clean a couch?” Rosen asks. “Like, it’s pretty disgusting.”

    Rosen also enjoys playing Rock Band, but he does study well enough to maintain a 3.2 GPA. Oh, and he’s one of the best quarterbacks in the country.
