Getting to Know your Roommate

We encourage you to reach out to your roommate via email, facebook, etc to begin to get to know them.  

Asking questions similar to those listed below may aid with moving in and laying a strong foundation for your roommate relationship.

  1. Where are you from? What are your interests? What are you studying?
  2. What are you bringing to the room? (discuss items like refrigerators, microwaves, futons, televisions, things that may take a lot of space)
  3. Are you an early riser or night owl?
  4. What are your expectations for a roommate?
  5. What are you comfortable sharing?
