Having a roommate can be both the most amazing experience, and a really tough one. For some people, getting a roommate in university leads to what is essentially an assigned best friend. In order for any roommate situation to work, there needs to be a lot of open communication.
I know some people who’ve grown incredibly close to their roommates and that’s great! For others, (like myself) a lack of communication can lead to simply co-existing with your roommate. You want to at least be on good chatting terms with the person who can watch you sleep.
So, if you’re getting a new roommate this fall (or just need to check in with some old ones!) I have a comprehensive list of questions you should ask your roommate to get to know each other.
