If you are experiencing a roommate conflict the first step is to discuss the situation with your roommate in order to come to a compromise together. Your RA may be able to help you and your roommate(s) resolve your differences through a mediation process if speaking with your roommate directly is a challenge. If, after this mediation, a room change seems desirable, you must speak with your Area Coordinator. The Area Coordinator may recommend a different way of managing the conflict or may recommend a room change to the Assistant Director of Residence and Commuter Life. The Assistant Director, in concert with the Housing Assistant, must authorize all changes. Please note that room changes are not possible until after the third week of each semester, and then only as space permits. Residents may not relocate to a new space until they have received written approval to do so from professional staff in Residence and Commuter Life.
