No part of the premises may be painted, wall-papered, or permanently decorated without the written consent of the Residence Authorities. Using nails, tacks, hooks, spikes, tape or other items to hang pictures, posters and other material on the walls in your room will result in damage and is not permitted.
In instances where the aforementioned items are applied to painted surfaces within a room or apartment, an assessment fee will result for each item. Failure to remove these items will result in additional fines. This assessment is over and above any damage to the room caused by the use of the prohibited item.
The following adhesives have been approved by the Residence:
- Magic-Mounts: A double-sided adhesive mounting square which can easily be removed from walls, doors and other painted surfaces without damaging the paint.
- 3M ‘Command’ Adhesive products: Mounting hooks of various sizes with a special adhesive, which can be removed from the wall without leaving damage/residue (please follow the directions exactly). The hooks are reusable with the purchase of addition adhesives strips. 3M products can be purchased at bookstores, hardware and department stores.
- Poster Putty: Reusable adhesive putty available at most department stores (various brand names).
