Living with Roommates

Many rooms in dormitories are shared with one or more room­mates. Your roommate will be someone of the same sex, whom you will not know. Be prepared to live with someone who could be very different from you. Room­mate arrangements often lead to life-long friendships, but on rare occasions roommates can prove mismatched. If you have prob­lems in your living arrangements with your roommate, contact your RA or someone else in charge of housing at your university to discuss the situation. After one or two semesters, you will be able to request a different room or a different roommate.
