Know Your Roommate(s)
Before you get here
Living with someone begins before you even move in! Contact your roommates and figure out common interests and lifestyles. Get to know each other. Discuss logistics details: find out who’s bringing what. For instance, could you share a mini-fridge?
How do I contact them?
Simply use the contact information included in the room assignment notification Housing sent to you by e-mail. You lost it? Look in the envelope that contains your residence agreement (sent by snail mail). It’s there too.
Once you’re here
Get acquainted as soon as you’re all settled in. Make time in the first few days to sit together and hang out.
- Make dinner together
- Go to u101 events together
- Watch a movie
By getting in the habit of talking with each other, you’ll have a happier, healthier year.
The key to a happy roommate relationship is open, honest communication!
