How would you handle a roommate disagreement?

As a resident, I would have talked with my roommate about the problem to try and find a solution that works for both of us.

As an RA I help my residents with their roommate conflicts by listening to and talking with both of them to try and come up with a resolution. We also refer to the husky mate agreement and we may make edits to it if necessary.

I may have a scheduled mediation session with both roommates in my room, or I may just give advice to one person about how they can deal with their specific situations they present to me if they don’t think their disagreement has come to the point where they want a mediation
