Navigating Roommate Conflict

Living with others can sometimes lead to disagreements. Use these tips to help navigate roommate conflict: Identify your role in the situation – how are you contributing to a solution? Use “I” statements to help clarify your own feelings – this will help you assert yourself rather than attack your roommate. Work with your roommate to mutually brainstorm solutions, and discuss the pros and cons of each solution you come up with. Once you’ve chosen a solution together, implement that solution and evaluate how it works out for each of you. For more tips on how to handle roommate conflicts, please schedule an appointment with Counseling Services by visiting <www.earlham.edu/counseling-services> or email Jessica Sanford at <sanfoje@earlham.edu> for more information.
