Holiday Decorations - Residence Hall Policy

Since many holiday decorations are highly combustible, special care must be taken in decorating. Cut live trees are NOT permitted in student rooms. Light cords used on artificial trees or in room decorations (including lights used in windows) must be Underwriter's Laboratory (UL) approved and should be checked for safety. Lights must be turned off when leaving the room. Window decorations celebrating the current holiday are permitted to be displayed but cannot obstruct the window. Live trees displayed in public lounges must be treated with flame-retardant material.
