The best way to avoid roommate conflicts is to have roommates proactively discuss expectations of each other and the shared living space. This includes guests/visitors, expectations regarding privacy, cleanliness, shared items/food, etc. One of the best tools to avoid conflict is a roommate agreement. In hall staff an assist roommates in creating a roommate agreement.
When/if disagreements occur, it is best to talk about them as soon as appropriately possible. If you need assistance initiating a difficult or uncomfortable conversation with your roommate(s), speak with your RA or Resident Director (RD). Sometimes it is best not to remain roommates. If that is the best option, your Housing and Residence Life staff member can let you know of open room spaces on campus. If other GIH spaces are available, you are welcome to choose a space in that designated area.
