Roommate/Resident Conflict and Reassignment Policy


Residents are encouraged to address their concerns in a non-confrontational discussion. 

1. Residents should speak to their RA. The RA will help negotiate a compromise. 

2. If conflict continues, a meeting with a Resident Counselor is recommended. 

3. The Resident Counselor will mediate with residents involved in the conflict and advise residents of the room swap procedure.

The Resident Counselor will make a decision to reassign based on the violation of policy and/ or agreements. Final assignment decisions will be made by Residential Life Office with due regard for the welfare of the occupants and availability of space. The Residential Life Office reserves the right to reassign any resident to any other accommodations any time it finds it is necessary or desirable to do so. Please note that all room swaps are at the discretion of the Residential Life office.
