Nearly all of our students share a bedroom and bathroom with one or more students. In all of our residence halls, students also share common kitchens and lounges. Once you receive your assignment, you can find your roommate(s) name and contact information through myHousing via myHill. We strongly encourage you to contact your roommate(s) through their email. Breaking the ice and starting to get to know your roommate prior to move-in will allow for you to begin the process of getting to know one another and ease any anxieties you may have about sharing your space. Once you have started to build a relationship, you can start to discuss expectations on how you will share your space.
After moving in, all first-year students will complete roommate agreements that outlines expectations for shared space. All returning students are strongly encouraged to complete the agreement, however, it is not required. Returning students will be required to complete a House and/or Suite agreement. Roommates should approach these agreements with an open mind and communicate the aspects of common living that are most important to them.
If you are having a roommate conflict, it is important to address it immediately. If you need assistance approaching your roommate, your Resident Assistant can assist with advice or a mediation.
All attempts to resolve conflict so that roommates can maintain a respectful living environment will be explored prior to considering requests to change your room. If you are looking to explore the option of a room change, please contact your Residence Director.
