Section 7.4: Roommate Agreements
Communication between roommates is key to having a successful and enjoyable year living together. Every resident is different and brings something unique to their roommate relationship. Sometimes the differences can clash and create conflict in the room.
- It is important that residents talk with their roommate and establish clear expectations for each other and how their room will be utilized during the academic year.
- Each should fill out a roommate agreement form. The form can be found on the Living with a Roommate page on the Residence Life website and printed copies are often in RA Offices.
- When the residents have finished, the RA should go over the form with the residents to ensure everything is reasonable.
- After everyone signs off agreeing to the agreement, every resident should take a picture of the agreement and the RA should place the original in the RA Office just in case there is a need to go back and revisit the agreement at a later date.
