We paint resident spaces as needed. Residents are not permitted to paint their own spaces. Whether on drywall or cinder block, the use of commercially available adhesive wall putties (such as Hold-It) virtually guarantees not to mar paint finishes or drywall surfaces and to avoid possible charges for wall damages. Residents may not drill into walls. Surprisingly, most double-sided foam adhesive tapes are difficult to remove, can damage paint, and must be avoided. If you are not sure, ask your Assistant Directors or RHD/AHD what is appropriate. Bottom line: your room and living areas must be returned in the same condition you received them or you will be billed for other than normal wear and tear.
