Common Roommate Conflicts
Oh, the sweet beginning of it all...
Like the song, the residents have just arrived at the dorms and are already 'best friends'
When a conflict starts to
during mediation, focus on...
"I feel", not "you did"
Attack the problem not the other person
Avoid the blame game

"You can't always get what you want"
3 Key Points
sweating the small stuff
putting it all on your shoulders
It's the end of September!
Now that the residents are starting to show their true colors, the claws may come out...
This is a great place to get a head start solving a roommate conflict...
BEFORE THEY BEGIN!
Take some time to go over the infamous Roommate Agreement in DETAIL at your first meeting.
Hint- Have them fill this out and discuss at the meeting.
Social media, gossip, and small communities can have a HUGE influence on conflict.
What if it's more serious...
"...don't let a grain of sand turn into a mountain"
Communication is Key
Wait...what?! These roommates haven't even talked to
each other yet??
Sometimes, all they need is a reminder.
If conflict still arises...
clarify the main issue
guide from personal attacks
remember ground rules!
Refer the student to whatever resource that they might need.
*If you find you need further help, and this issue isn't going anywhere, just ASK!*
The resident has shown signs of distress
(bizarre behavior,excessive crying, feels hopeless, talks about suicide/death)
Compromise: the magic word.
The worst is over! Now you have officially gotten through a roommate conflict and your residents agree (or somewhat agree) on a solution to their problems.
The good ole' roommate agreement.
This stage is where you go over what they originally agreed on when they were 'best friends' and remind them of the happy times.
Give them the option to 'alter' their original agreement to help solve the current issue.
NO MORE CONFLICTS!!
although this would be great, it isn't very realistic...but we can do what we can to keep them to a minimum!
Follow-up with your residents and where they are at after the compromise and changes were made.
YAY!!!! YOU DID IT!!!!!!
