Massachusetts College Roommate Agreement

The Massachusetts College Roommate Agreement, otherwise known as a “dorm room agreement,” provides itself as an icebreaker of sorts, encouraging the discussion of the student’s living preferences, habits, and other day-to-day behaviors. During this deliberation, the agreement imparts as a means to record the agreed-upon norms and “rules” that they all will agree to follow for the course of the semester or college year. Not only does this provide clarity for the roommates; it contributes a significant amount to reduced conflict and happier relations among those living in the dorm.
