If you have a roommate conflict during the year, you should contact your Resident Advisor to discuss the issues and possible solutions; they are trained in mediation and can help to solve the problem. If the concern persists, the Resident Advisor will notify the Residence Life Coordinator (the manager who oversees the Residence Life program), who will then work with both parties to achieve a solution.

Monthly, the Residence will be sending out important information, including what to bring to Residence, move in information, ways to get involved, Orientation Week, and the roommate portal process.

This information will be sent to the email address you used when you applied on the Housing Portal.
