Living in a residence hall means you will have many neighbors – all within a short walking distance! In order to make your residence hall community experience as positive as possible, we encourage all students to participate in the creation of a Community Agreement. Very similar to a Roommate Agreement, the Community Agreement is discussion that helps guide you and your neighbors in the creation of a strong, safe, and fun living environment. Your RA and Peer Mentor will be there to facilitate the conversation, but it is up to you and your floormates to make it work.
Be prepared to talk about floor activities and events, open door policies, guests, quiet hours, safety and security, floor meetings, communication, and most important – respect. As always, the Residential First-Year Experience hall staff are available throughout the year to help you with any community concerns or issues.
