Painting in Student Rooms

Because of a history of problems and paint-spattered carpets, student painting of rooms or common spaces is prohibited.

If you feel that your room or common space needs painting, contact your RA. If painting is indicated, he/she will submit a maintenance request to have the painting done by Physical Plant staff.

Any student who undertakes painting on his/her own will bear full financial and disciplinary liability for damages incurred in the process and for repainting if deemed necessary by Residence Life or Physical Plant staff. If damage charges result, the room residents will be charged collectively unless an individual is determined to be specifically responsible.
