Community Contracts and Living Agreements
These contracts are designed to open lines of communication between roommates, suitemates, apartmentmates, housemates, and floormates. The contract asks students sharing a common space to discuss expectations and guidelines for living together. Some of the topics are: guests, smoking, telephones, use of other’s property, and cleaning standards. It is very important when living with others to reach an understanding of what is important to you and to determine your limits.
Ideally, you will complete and discuss these contracts within the first few weeks of school. Hall staff are available to assist you with this process. Students may be held accountable for these documented agreements.
