Roommate Information

As exciting as it can be to move into a residence hall, 第一次和陌生人住在一起似乎也很伤脑筋. 话虽如此,有一个室友可以是一个很好的机会去了解别人. Here are some tips for creating a great roommate relationship!

  1. Be honest and be yourself! 就像任何一段新的关系一样,你会想要以正确的方式开始,做真实的自己. This way your roommate can get to know the real you. If you are open about your own personality, wants, and needs, it’s likely that your roommate will open up as well.
  2. Have an open mind. Not everyone is coming from the same background that you are, in fact, 你在大学里遇到的大多数人都来自与你截然不同的行业. 试着去理解和体谅别人的身份和经历.
  3. Set clear expectations from the beginning. 你和你的室友永远不会知道对方在想什么, 因此,您需要明确您对共享空间的期望是什么. 想想看:谁来负责倒垃圾? How late can you leave the lights on at night? Can you borrow each other’s belongings? These are important questions, 所以我们建议你在搬进来后尽快和你的室友讨论这些问题. Roommate contracts can be super helpful!
  4. 你不需要和你的室友成为最好的朋友,甚至不需要成为朋友. 我们永远不会指望你在不应该成为朋友的时候强迫别人做朋友. However, 我们确实希望你们能建立一种相互尊重的关系,并分享双方都支付的空间. 有些室友会成为好朋友,有些只是偶尔聊天. Either type of relationship is fine, 只要你们能够相互沟通和尊重.
  5. When in doubt, talk it out. 就像你和你的室友可能有不同的生活方式一样, 你也可能有不同的方式来处理冲突. 无论你和室友的关系如何,冲突总会在某个时候出现. 确保你度过难关的最好方法就是谈论它.
  6. Remember, there’s always someone here to help! Make sure you get to know your Resident Assistant, as they can help when conflict becomes too tough to handle. 助理助理在调解和冲突管理方面受过专门训练,他们总是乐意帮助你解决问题.
