The College provides basic room furniture. No alterations are to be made to this furniture, and no structures are to be built on which furniture pieces will be placed. You may loft your furniture by means of the headboard/footboard pieces and bunking pins provided, but may not build or use any sort of platform or item with the intention of using it for this purpose. Beds may not be triple bunked. Mattresses must be on a bed frame – never resting directly on the floor.
As College-owned furnishings meet our safety standards, and storage space is non-existent, residents may not remove furniture from rooms/apartments or put it in the hallway. Furniture items that are damaged and/or missing from rooms at the end of the year will be charged to all occupants of the room at the replacement rate. Additional furniture brought into the room must be freestanding and clear of all existing fixtures, heaters/ air conditioners, windows, window screens, and mechanical equipment.
Closet doors must be left attached.
Residents may not paint any part of their room, apartment, furniture or equipment. Contact paper is also prohibited as it is difficult to remove and will cause damage. Residents may not add any flooring that will attach to the provided floor covering.
Only non-marring adhesives may be used to hang posters, pictures and other decorations. “Gum” poster adhesives work well in most cases. Stickers and decals may not be applied to windows, furniture, walls or doors. Dartboards are prohibited. No decorations of any kind should be placed on or hung from the ceiling. Also, no decorations of any kind may be placed across hallways or walk spaces. Residents may not use any object in such a manner which creates a hole, no matter the size, in any wall, ceiling or piece of furniture provided.
All decorations should reflect College standards and values and comply with College policy.
