  • 3. When choosing a college roommate, many students are not able to or choose not to live with a friend. Sharing a room with a stranger not only increases the potential for making new friends, but also helps to preserve an existing friendship that might be strained by sharing a living space. To find someone who may be compatible, but isn't yet within your circle, consider how you study, live, and socialize.
  • 4. For example, compatible roommates often both prefer a quieter home base, or both prefer to have music playing in the background most of the time. Similarly, two people may live peacefully together if both are cheerful early risers or if both prefer to sleep past noon, given the chance. It can also help strengthen the relationship to have a shared interest, such as a TV show or a hobby that can serve as a bonding experience. When roommates have a similar lifestyle and an activity or two in common, they can form a stronger foundation for a year of shared living.
