How do you find the right roommates?

Before agreeing to be roommates…

Figure out if you’re a good fit by completing the Roommate Compatibility Checklist. Each person should fill one out and then swap and compare results. You don’t need to be exactly the same, but living together may be easier if your lifestyles match up.

Once you have decided to be roommates…

Once you've agreed on living together, complete the Roommate Success Plan with your roommates to establish plans for the rental and bill payments, room division, and house rules. Agreeing to a plan for successful living can go a long way in avoiding roommate conflicts!
