Residential Hall Damage

•NO hanging anything on sprinkler heads or pipes. This damages heads and can
cause floods. Students damaging sprinkler heads will be financially responsible
for all associated damage, both university property and student property.
•NO “over-the-door” hanging racks. These brackets damage doors and
door frames.
•NO dart boards. They are against university policy.
•NO screws or nails. They damage all surfaces.
•NO adhesive or duct tape on doors, trim, carpeted surfaces, ceilings, floors,
or walls. Use only white “Hold It” or “Plasti-Tak” putty.

Student Handbook:

“Pictures and bulletin boards may be hung only from the picture rail where present.
Scotch tape, staples, adhesive holders, screws, brackets, tacks and nails are not to be
used on the painted walls, woodwork, floors, ceilings, or doors. Hooks for picture rails
may be purchased in the University Bookstore.”
“Push pins and thumb tacks have been approved on vinyl wall coverings in student
rooms only. Nails are not to be used any place, at any time.”
