Frequently Asked Questions

What do I do if my roommate and I just don't get along?

A roommate can be a cohort, tutor, and adviser. He or she is someone with whom you can share telephone, cable television, and refrigerator bills. A roommate can also be a friend to share the fun and pressures of your college years. We hope the relationships you build with your roommate(s) will continue long after you leave Ithaca College.

In general, Ithaca College's limited housing space prohibits the changing of rooms as a means of solving roommate problems. Therefore, it is important that you give your roommate situation every opportunity to work. If you need assistance with a roommate issue, contact your RA and ask about mediation.
