Roommates and suitemates are strongly encouraged to complete a room/suitemate agreement within the first few days of the academic year. Doing so encourages dialogue about room expectations. Roommates following the agreements can ward off the vast majority of roommate conflicts.
When conflicts arise between roommates, Hall Staff will encourage students to attempt to resolve issues on their own before intervening in the situation. If unable to reach an agreement, students are to contact their Resident Advisor and/or Hall Director to obtain assistance in resolving their differences. Hall Directors have a list of available hours posted outside their office along with phone numbers. If unable to resolve differences on their own, students are encouraged to work with the staff to solve issues. Please note that parental involvement usually compounds issues that may otherwise be resolved by students working things out themselves.
