Is there anywhere that screen resolution can be set for the users at the domain group policy level?

What functional level is your domain? – Nixphoe Jul 7 '11 at 15:35

There is no direct option for doing this in group policy.

What you can do though is write a startup script to do this for you and assign that out via group policy. You'll have to rely on a third party application to change the resolution. I did this once before and was able to find a free one. On my (very quick) search right now, I was only able to come up with this option.

+1 Our district uses that very app. Although, we stick it in user-logon scripts (rather than per-computer) as needed. Works as described. – jscott Jul 7 '11 at 15:45
