All students of The University of Southern Mississippi community living on campus.
Website Address for this Policy
Students are reminded that the use of nails, staples or glue on walls is prohibited. 3M poster and/or picture hanging strips should be used to attach posters and pictures to the walls (when vacating the room, remove the poster/picture and leave the strip on the wall for maintenance to remove to avoid possible damage).
Permanent adhesives (double-sided masking tape, contact paper, etc.) are not to be used. Wall borders of any type are not permitted.
BACK TO TABLE OF CONTENTS
Items must fit in each room properly without being stacked, being a nuisance to the roommate, or creating an environment that becomes a health, safety or fire concern.
The Director of Student Housing Administration is responsible for the review of this policy every four years (or whenever circumstances require immediate review).
