The Importance of College Roommate Relationships: A Review and Systemic Conceptualization
Erb, Sarah E.; Renshaw, Keith D.; Short, Jerome L.; Pollard, Jeffrey W.
Journal of Student Affairs Research and Practice, v51 n1 p43-55 Feb 2014
This article reviews empirical studies of the role of college roommate relationships in students' mental health and college adjustment. We propose a systemic conceptualization of roommate relationships that highlights roommates' interdependence and origins of roommate relationship dynamics. We discuss practice implications for student affairs professionals, provide a case example, and offer recommendations for future research.
