Use command strips to put things on the wall! You can buy them from amazon. They’re completely damage free.

Unless you remove them incorrectly in which case they can take paint off.

Fairylights are popular because you can loop them over things without actually sticking them to the walls (In halls I had them around my pinboard, and in second year around the headboard of my bed and draped over the surfaces. You could also put pictures and posters in frames and just prop them up against walls if you have enough room. Fake or real plants also look nice, you can get them from Ikea pretty cheap, and unis normally do a plant sale in freshers week.
