Getting along with roommates is never easy, but here are a few tips, that will help put you more at ease.

  1. Define your needs, expectations and wants in an ideal living situation and discuss it with the person you are or will be residing with.
  2. Address any important issues, complaints or concerns as quickly as possible, to get problems resolved sooner, rather than later.
  3. Work as a unite within your household by figuring out ways to join forces on projects or planning for your shared living space.
  4. Hangout and get to know each other, or just work on forging a bond that goes beyond the zip code you share.
  5. Do unto others, as you wish others would do unto you, by being a reflection of the roommate you would want living with you.
