Connecticut Roommate Agreement
A Connecticut roommate agreement is a document used by roommates to set expectations of how to act while occupying a house, apartment, or condo together. The purpose of this form is to prevent future conflict and establish a way to handle disagreements that occur. This form is five (5) pages long and can include up to eight (8) roommates. It includes the following sections: utilities, parking, cleaning and yardwork, food preparation, personal property, noise and privacy, damage, guests, smoking, pets, and mediation.
College (Dorm) Roommate Agreement
On the other end of roommate contracts is the Connecticut College Roommate Agreement. The form, which is for use by students of UConn, Post University, Yale, and other Connecticut-based schools, lays out a set of student-set rules for the roommates to follow for a given semester or school year. College advisors and RAs (Resident Assistants) will commonly recommend completing the agreement as soon as possible, as delaying completing the agreement only reduces the likelihood of it being completed. If a roommate doesn’t listen to a condition laid out in the agreement, the other student(s) can then report the student to an RA or dorm staff to get assistance in resolving the dispute.
