university walls?

Announcements Posted on

    so for university digs and private/ rented accomodation how are we students meant to avoid the no blue-tac on the walls rule? as plain walls is so unappealing, yet when i take posters off the wall i inevitably leave a little bit on the wall - as i can't get it off :/ or worse still a bit of the paint comes off :0 does anyone have any ideas as how to overcome this issue? / has anyone ever been penalised for having blue/white tac on the walls or for the damage it has caused?

    is it the same with wall paper?

    White tac, it isn't oil based. Problem solved

    I used white tac on my walls last year and it still left a mark and a little bit of the paint peeled off (my advice for that is just to pull it off really slowly, more like pushing it off with your nail). I didn't get charged for it when I moved out though so I guess it wasn't that bad.

    Move it regularly during the year ... it stays tacky for a month or so then sets and that is when the problem occurs ... move it/squidge it/change it and it will be fine

    White is better than Blu has been said

    You can get some sticky poster things from smiths. They cost a bit more than everything else, but they guarantee not to leave any marks. Which they managed to do.
