University of york - accomodation

Hi, just wondering if anyone has further details about decorating in accommodations - are posters (anything on the walls that don’t cause damage) really banned?

All rooms have a pinboard for you to decorate, so loads of people will put up posters or photos/polaroids. You aren’t supposed to use blue tac or tape on the walls but a lot of people do it anyway - especially because the paint in rooms on west is already quite old and usually already has damage from other people putting things up in previous years. There’s also a poster sale on campus west at the freshers fair.

Hi,

We request that posters etc. are put up on the pinboard so that you don't damage any of the decorative finish of your room 🙂
