Current ResidentsRoommate Agreements
Living away from home, sharing a room (often for the first time), and immersing oneself in a diverse student community can be a rewarding as well as a challenging experience. As part of our mission, Residence Life is committed to providing a positive living environment in which all students are welcome, productive, and feel safe. However we recognize roommate conflicts do occur and resolving them is a shared responsibility between students, parents, and housing staff. In order to help facilitate communication and honesty among roommates, as well as to minimize the severity of potential conflicts that can arise, Residence Life provides students a Roommate Agreement.
Students are required to work with their roommates to fill out a detailed Roommate Agreement during the first few days after mooov-in. These forms will ask roommates to have conversations in order to reach agreements on a variety of topics in order to meet each person's needs. Topics include:
- When the room should be quiet.
- When guests are welcome.
- Expectations for tidiness.
