Windows are part of the building that complement the total campus ambiance. For safety and security purposes, items other than curtains are prohibited from being attached, hung or displayed on the inside of residence hall windows. Decorating windows for university–sponsored activities or national holidays will be allowed, provided the display is hung by means that will not damage the window or surrounding walls (no decals) and the display is removed one week after the activity/date. Residence Life staff have the authority to ask a student to remove inappropriate or offensive decorations. Failure to remove the decoration or display could result in a failure to comply citation.
