Living with Roommates
Perhaps one of the greatest advantages of living in a Campus Advantage community is the opportunity to live and work closely with all types of people. We know that living with roommates isn’t always easy, whether you moved in with friends or were matched up with new people. Either way, it’s perfectly normal to have the occasional roommate conflict, and there is actually a lot to be gained from handling a difficult situation maturely and respectfully.
We want to make sure you have the tools to handle situations should they arise, so check out the tips below to ensure you and your roommates have the best living experience possible this year:
- Schedule a roommate meeting — Set aside time to get together and have proactive conversations about everyone’s preferences and expectations regarding cleanliness, guests, sleeping/study times, the use of others’ belongings or food, etc.
- Be open-minded — You and your roommates may be very different, and that’s OK! Stay open-minded and positive about your roommates’ views and experiences, and you may end up learning a lot about them and yourself in the process.
- Give each other space — Even though your apartment is made for multiple people, everyone appreciates having some space to call their own. Make sure you share time in common areas and respect each other’s privacy.
- When in doubt, talk it out — Most problems can be solved by just talking through the issue before they get out of hand. If something is seriously bugging you about one of your roommates, bring it to them in a mature one-on-one conversation before bringing in other roommates or escalating the situation.
- Divide responsibilities — While every roommate should commit to cleaning up after themselves, determine the best way to divide responsibilities, such as taking out the trash, vacuuming, cleaning the kitchen, etc., to ensure everyone does their part.
- Use conflict-resolution backup — While talking can usually fix an issue in its early stages, sometimes a more structured approach is necessary. If you’ve tried and feel your efforts aren’t helping resolve an issue between roommates, reach out to your Community Assistant or the management team to help you brainstorm options. We’re trained and willing to help conduct a roommate mediation process if necessary, but are also happy to help provide you with tips and tools to handle things yourself.
We want you to have a successful living experience while at our community, but we know that living with roommates can mean an occasional difference of opinion. When roommates decide to communicate their expectations, listen and try to understand each other, and care for each other’s well-being. The many great memories you make will outweigh any small conflict you may have.
