Decorating Your Room

We want you to personalize your space to make it a reflection of you. That said, we do ask you to do so in a way that will not cause any permanent damage to walls, doors, etc. You may use reusable, non-adhesive putty. Command strips are often not installed and removed properly, causing considerable damage as a result, and are therefore not to be used. Please do not use any materials (nails, tacks, pushpins or tape) that will damage walls or paint.
