Living on a college campus is often the first time that students experience sharing a living space with another person. Investing some time and establishing open communication with your roommate(s) will go a long way in helping you to develop a good roommate relationship!
The Roommate Agreement is a tool to assist you and your roommate(s) (a) in beginning the conversation about living together and your personal preferences, and (b) assisting you in resolving a conflict or disagreement. How will we use our room space? Are there specific times for studying and sleeping? What are our expectations for guests? These are some of the questions that you and your roommate(s) will discuss for your room.
You will receive a copy of the Roommate Agreement form when you arrive and move into your room. You may also download a copy of the Roommate Agreement (featured document on this page), or ask your Apartment/Resident Assistant (AA/RA) or Community/Residence Director (CD/RD) for a copy.
