What can I do if I don't get along with my roommate?
We do our best to place you with someone that matches your learning and social styles based on your preferences (which you fill out before coming to Stout and have the opportunity to change every year with your contract), yet sometimes it is difficult to click and from time to time things just don't work out.
Our RAs are trained to help you through possible roommate issues and we encourage you to try to work through them before making a room change. Try to talk it out, or revisit issues, with a roommate agreement. Your RA can help you plan for this conversation.
If in the end the chemistry just isn't there, talk with your RA and RLC to find out what options are available to you. Please note that you can't force your roommate out of the room if s/he doesn't want to leave. Yet, you can request to move to another space.
Up until a few days before move-in when a campus-wide room freeze goes into effect, a student may search and request an open space through the Housing Gateway. After your campus arrival, check with your RLC regarding open spaces across campus.
