Communication may be the single-most important factor in building good relationships with your roommate(s). By working with each other, a roommate agreement may help begin the process of discussing issues that may be sources of conflict.

A roommate agreement is an excellent starting point for your roommate relationships. Thoughtfully filling this out early in the year can help establish expectations that were agreed upon together. It can also create a starting point for conversation as conflicts arise throughout the year.

Use our Off-Campus Roommate Agreement to have this important conversation with your roommate(s). This form should be printed and signed by each roommate. You may also come by the Off-Campus Resources office and pick up a printed copy.
