Step 3 Prepare a time to meet your new AR to introduce yourself. Meet your new roommates and make a new roommate agreement. Residents must complete the online suitemate agreement when they move in. As we are not exactly the same in our daily habits or routines, we ask that you meet your roommates in the first week of your stay to discuss and agree on a number of group expectations regarding cleaning, noise, overnight stays, garbage, recycling and composting, etc. Once you have reached a consensus on the basic rules, document them online in this formal agreement. This process should be repeated every time a new roommate moves in. Our experience has shown that the process of talking about problems in an honest and open discussion before they become a problem saves you a lot of time and frustration at a later stage. If you have trouble finding an agreement, your advisor is at your disposal to facilitate your interview. All roommates are required to participate constructively in the process. Please note that during the first month of your move-in, we do not accept any change requests to give you and your roommates an appropriate opportunity to adapt and adapt to your new environment and try to resolve issues with local systems (Suitemate Agreement/RAs).
Residents who have successfully completed this process report that it is a valuable personal and professional ability. If you are interested in changing rooms, please fill out the room change form. Please note that room changes are only allowed in extenuating circumstances. Step 2 Once you have fully moved into your new room, return your old room keys to the reception of the residence.

Sometimes your friends aren`t the best roommates; Respect and courtesy should be your goals. > Read the Graduate House Residence Handbook. > Every co-life situation requires flexibility and compromise from each party. These are skills that you will use in other co-life situations in the future. > Think about your values about alcohol, drugs, customers, etc.
in your home. Be sure to communicate these values to your roommates. They won`t know if you don`t tell them anything. > Set realistic expectations about common time, cleanliness, sharing objects or food. > Use resources such as the Suitemate agreement, your resident advisor, or mediation guide in case of a problem.
