Relevant excerpt

Realizing that the display of certain items may be considered offensive and disrespectful to some community members, the university highly encourages the use of discretion concerning the "content" of the pictures or posters displayed in rooms and hallways. Decorations inconsistent with university philosophy may not be displayed. This includes sexually oriented or suggestive items or depictions (including "soft pornography") or any other material which present the human body in a degrading manner, occult materials, and alcohol, drug, and tobacco advertisements or paraphernalia. Illegally obtained street signs are also prohibited. The final interpretation of whether a decoration is inappropriate will rest with the Residence Director. Residents possessing any materials that the university deems questionable may be asked to remove such items from their rooms.
