Here are some tips to help you find a compatible roommate. Where to Find Someone Social Media - You may consider using the Student Activities Facebook page as an avenue to advertise for potential roommates. Networking – Network through friends, classmates, clubs, and/or memberships. Advertise Around Campus – Public bulletin boards in the Student Union, academic buildings, and residence hall locations. Things to Consider How many people are allowed to live in your rental property? How many people do you want to live with you? Where do you prefer to study? How do you like to spend free time? What are you willing to pay for rent/utilities? How long are you planning to live with this roommate? Are you willing to put your name down on the lease and/or utilities? How much do you (really) care about cleanliness? What are you willing to share? What do you expect from your roommate? Questions to Ask Potential Roommates How do you feel about sharing your personal belongings? Would you describe yourself as organized or organized chaos? What type of relationship are you looking for from a roommate? What are your expectations of a roommate? Are you a night owl or an early riser? Do you have a car? Do you smoke/drink? How do you feel about overnight guests? How reliable is your stream of income to pay for rent/utilities?
