Housing and Residence Life is committed to fostering engaging residential communities where students will learn and grow as they pursue their academic degrees. We are also committed to creating environments that follow best practices regarding community health during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. You can find responses to some important questions you may be asking about what to expect when you join us on campus here.

To facilitate a harmonious living environment, we encourage you to talk to your roommate and try to resolve problems between each other first. If roommates cannot resolve their conflict, residents are encouraged to inform their Resident Advisor, Graduate Assistant or Residence Education Coordinator. The Resident Advisor (RA) lives in the area with the students, while the Residence Education Coordinator (REC) and/or Graduate Assistant (GA) supervises the building and staff. Your RA is the best person to begin discussions with and then you can engage the REC and/or GA if the RA cannot resolve the issues.

The following are steps our residential staff will take to assist in creating an agreement if one does not exist:

  1. The staff member will review the Living Agreement or assist in creating an agreement if one does not exist.
  2. The staff member will assist the roommates in a mediation process to open the lines of communication and attempt to come to a compromise or agreement.
  3. If students cannot arrive at a compromise after going through the previous steps, a room change is possible depending on space availability and room "freeze" dates.

Students wishing to protect their belongings from the possibility of loss should obtain appropriate insurance coverage. Some residents may be covered under their parents' existing homeowner's or renter's policy. Check with your personal insurance company for more information.
