Let's face it. It's not always easy living with someone. While Pitt-Bradford is a friendly campus, you and your roommate still may disagree on a thing or two.
We've found that the key to a successful roommate relationship is honest and open communication. Take time to talk to your roommate.Tell your roommate what really bugs you. Don’t let any of your concerns go unsaid. You will be much better off to get it out in the open right from the start.
From our experience the greatest challenges lie in:
If you've spoken to your roommate and things don't seem to be getting better, you can discuss your problem with your resident advisor or with a member of our residential life staff.
Another option is mediation. Mediation is a formal communication process between two parties with differing goals and agendas. The goal is to get those involved to agree on some parameters that will help them create a more positive living environment.
If you still have questions or need some assistance, contact the Office of Residential Life and Housing at 814-362-7630.
There is nothing like the experience of living on a college campus.
