Relevant excerpt

Posters and Hallways:
All posters in public areas of the on-campus housing facilities must be reviewed by a Residential Life staff member and must be dated with the Office of Residential Life stamp. Posters for campus events may be placed on a public area door for the day of the event and taken down the same day. Other than this exception, posters cannot be posted on any exit, fire, floor entrance or wing doors or in stairwells.

Residents’ room doors are considered part of the hallway and therefore part of a public area. Residents are allowed to put postings on their door, but no more than 33% of the door may be covered for fire safety reasons. Please consider if the posting you are placing on the outside of your door is appropriate for a public area.

Public Areas:
Public areas in the residence halls consist of all lounges, kitchens, bathrooms, hallways and stairwells. The Office of Residential Life wants every resident to feel welcome, safe and comfortable in their living environment so residents are encouraged to be respectful and appropriate in their interactions and to consider the impact their words and actions may have on other residents.
