Off-Campus Student Services recommends that a Roommate Contract be completed anytime a new lease is signed or a lease is renewed. This document is designed to provide its users the opportunity to establish some guidelines related to the details of their living arrangements. Users are encouraged to spend quality time discussing each section, being as forthright and honest with their opinions as possible. Although designed to be a legally binding agreement, its main purpose is to provide a chance for you to proactively discuss issues that could potentially become areas of conflict.The contract can be found in the Off-Campus Survival Manual.
