We want you to enjoy this year as you begin, or continue, your journey at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey. A good place to start is by developing a relationship with your roommate(s). In order to develop a healthy roommate relationship, it is vital that you begin communicating right away. This guide is designed to help you do just that.
Shortly after the semester begins, your Resident Assistant (RA) or Apartment Assistant (AA) will host a floor meeting to explain and distribute your roommate agreement. You will be asked to meet with your roommate(s) and fill out the agreement by a specific date and to return it your RA/AA. Although this document is in writing, please remember that staff members are available throughout the year to revisit previous decisions should they not be working out for you and your roommate(s). Our number one priority is to assist you in making your experience at Rutgers University a positive one.
