The Glee House is where the contenders live when filming The Glee Project, and is where they will spend most of their time. Known rooms in the house include separate bedrooms for the boys and girls, a long hallway, a rec room, a small kitchen, a bathroom, and several other rooms. While living in the house, contenders are not allowed to contact their friends to tell them about the results. It is unknown if the choir room, recording studio, waiting room, confessional, make-up room, costume storage, and dance studio are part of the house or located somewhere else as the contenders are never seen walking to and from them.
Seasons 1 and 2Edit
Season 1EditIn the first season of The Glee Project, the bedrooms, rec room, and hallway are seen for the first time. The house has been decorated in a simple, gender-neutral way. The boys and girls rooms looked very similar, with the biggest difference being the colour of the sheets on their beds (black for boys and white for girls). The living room had colourful pillows and chairs everywhere, and a giant couch for the contenders to sit on. There are closets in the bedrooms for the contenders to keep their clothes in since the contenders are allowed to dress themselves for everything except music videos. Although there are bedrooms for the boys and girls rules don't seem very strict about where they can sleep, as there have been times where they all slept in 1 room together and they would sometimes stay up all night.
The house had to be slightly modified to make it more accessible for contenders with disabilities and to accommodate more contenders than season 1. The house has been given a new look this season, with new furniture and artwork. There are smaller beds this season which could be to prevent contenders from sitting beside each other on them, or to make room for more beds and closets. More parts of the house have been shown this season. A kitchen, bathroom, and excersice room have been shown for the first time. It is also revealed that the house has at least two levels.
Parts of the HouseEdit
When the contenders are in the house, cameras follow them all the time. They have a few mounted cameras in the living areas and a couple overhead cameras in the bedrooms, but most of the time they use handheld cameras operated by staff. Mounted cameras are not allowed in the bathroom but handheld cameras are allowed sometimes when the contenders are just talking or putting on make-up. The contenders bring their own clothes and are allowed to dress themselves for everything except music videos, although in bonus scenes from season 1 the contenders are shown talking to wardrobe and make-up about what kinds of clothes they like.
Season 1: Dorms are gender neutral and contain beds, closets, and pictures above each bed. Boys and girls will visit each other's dorms frequently. There have been times where everyone would sleep in the same room and sometimes the contenders would stay up all night instead of going to sleep.
Season 2: Dorms have been modified to make them more gender specific. Frequently, boys visit the girls' dorm and girls visit theirs. The beds are smaller in season 2 than season 1, but the contenders will sometimes push unused beds together to make them bigger.

Season 2:The choir room is bigger and the ceiling is black instead of white. The different levels on the floor are a lot wider and not as tall as in Season One, and there are rails on the side. The stairs are gone because it is easier to get on the stage.
