Living in close quarters can be stressful. Making your expectations clear, talking about concerns before they develop into huge problems, and being willing to compromise helps pave the way to successful roommate relationships. The Shared Living Expectations form is designed to prompt discussions to ensure that each individual’s wants and needs are addressed in the shared space. This form is a tool to help you navigate establishing expectations and your relationship.
Once you and your roommate(s)/suite mates/apartment mates complete the form, we recommend each of you keep a copy for your records. Keep in mind, much like the Community Agreement, this is a living document that can be adjusted at anytime. If you need guidance with this process, please seek assistance from your RA or a Residence Life staff member, however it is not the job of the staff to enforce this - it's yours!
