We do not recommend any kind of adhesive product for use on walls. Poster putty, duct tape, and foam tapes will damage walls. In addition, nails and screws may not be used in any surface, as they create excessive damage that could be billed back to you. Thumbtacks may be used in walls, as long as they are not used excessively.
When in doubt, contact hall staff regarding changes/modifications to your room and to see if items are permitted.
