College will be full of challenges, many leading to rewarding results and your growth as an independent adult. Living with a roommate is one of these challenges. Many college students have never shared a room with another person for an extended period of time, making this a first time experience. We are excited for you to get to know other residents and to learn something new from your roommate. You may even learn something knew about yourself along the way.
Your resident advisor will help you develop a roommate agreement upon your arrival. This agreement helps you share expectations for your living arrangement, lays out how you and your roommate prefer to communicate and how to address issues as they arise. In order to help you foster a positive and successful roommate relationship, we have provided a few tips listed below.
Organize the room together: Collectively decide who is going to use what furniture in the room. Successful roommates make a residence hall room a home by adding personal touches and working together to arrange the room to the liking of everyone who shares the space.
