Now that you know a little about your roommate as a person, it’s time to talk about expectations and set some guidelines
for living in the same room, apartment, or suite. Be open with your needs but also be willing to compromise. Discuss
the following issues that roommates typically disagree about. After discussing these items with your roommate(s) and
coming to decisions about your living arrangements, you should write how it will be in your room on the Roommate
Agreement provided. This agreement sets the standard for you, your roommates and guests. Post the agreement where
everyone can see it, give a copy to your RA and revise it throughout the year. The agreement can be very valuable
in avoiding problems later. Additional copies of the roommate agreement form can be obtained from your Resident
Assistant (RA).
