Female Roommates

If you grew up as an only child, or as the only female child in a group of siblings, learning to get along with female roommates can be quite challenging. When you live in a women’s dormitory, you will generally share your room with between one and three female roommates, depending on the size. Your room is a small part of the larger building, which means that you will really have hundreds of female roommates.
