We discourage the use of "Command Strips." Most students forget those adhesive strips are behind their posters, photos, etc. and end up ripping off large chunks of paint and drywall, which results in a charge for an entire wall patch and paint after move out. We'd prefer that you go ahead and use a pin or very small nail for your items, which are more likely to be easily and inexpensively repaired.
