    YES. I will admit to being one of those sticklers for quietness. I don't understand why people in rooms around me can't use headphones or something. It's funny because I feel like I am going out of my way to make sure I don't disturb others while they just don't give a damn if they are impeding on others or not.

    This is a Catholic University, so we definitely have quiet hours and guest hours.

    Omg, I bet! There are plenty of cases with that here and I find it revolting that people will put their roommate through that. I really don't understand the logic behind being so disrespectful to others. Would you ask someone to leave the room so you can masturbate? Then why the hell would you ask them to leave so you can have sex? That's not your roommate's problem.

    Ok, so I definitely will try and push a mandatory roommate contract. I feel a calling to do some kind of Roommate 101 lecture to them. I feel like if I can stand up, look them in the eyes, and tell them that kicking your roommate out so you can have sex is disrespectful (not to mention against school policy), it could at least prevent some people from having to go through stupid shit like that. Some people are just not good with confrontation (like me) and so they have to sit through a whole semester dealing with someone like that. It's very awkward to go up to an RA and say "My roommate is having sex in the room".

    I've so many people miserable because of a bad roommate.

    They weren't doing this 8 years ago, but I would assume that things change.

    Be sure to ask 'Do you prefer your roommate to ____?" AND "Do you _____?"

    You can't always assume that someone acts the same way they expect everyone else to... ^^

    You went to UNC 8 years ago? I graduated from there 10 years ago.

    I distinctly remember being required to complete a roommate contract when I started there as a junior. Maybe only certain dorms do this.

    Edit: Also, I'm referring to UNC-Chapel Hill. There are a bunch of other schools in the UNC system (Charlotte, Asheville, Wilmington, Pembroke, etc) so maybe it's not universal to the UNC system.
