After Hours Assistance

  1. I need assistance after hours.
    Please contact a Peer Advisor, one of the Peer Advisors on call, or a residence hall front desk.

Living with a Roommate

  1. I am having issues with my roommate. What do I do?
    Talk to your roommate. If, after speaking to your roommate(s) face-to-face about the issues you are experiencing, nothing is resolved, speak with your Peer Advisor.
  2. What is a roommate agreement?
    A roommate agreement is a document all members of the apartment/suite/room abide by during their time living in the space. Contents of the agreement are determined by the roommates and cover multiple areas. Main categories include cleaning tasks, taking out the trash, as well as apartment/suite/room guest policies. Residential Life works to complete roommate agreements in all spaces.
  3. How do I set up roommate agreement?
    In the beginning of each academic year, Peer Advisors will coordinate with their residents to complete a roommate agreement for the apartment/suite/room. If a new resident moves into a space in the apartment/suite/room, Peer Advisors will work with the students to set up or reevaluate the roommate agreement as necessary.

Getting Involved in University Village

  1. I want to get involved in University Village. What can I do?
    Residential Life sponsors two student organizations in University Village: the Residential Housing Association (RHA) and the National Residence Housing Honorary. Both organizations provide students with leadership opportunities in both the residence halls and apartments.
  2. I want to be a Peer Advisor (PA). How can I do that?
    The Peer Advisor application process begins at the end of the fall semester, with applications due in January. If you are interested in becoming a PA, please contact reslife@utdallas.edu or “Like” our Interested in Being a PA? Facebook page for more information.
