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.

Tips for Maintaining a Positive Relationship with Female Roommates:

  • Communicate openly and honestly
  • Respect your roommates’ privacy
  • Don’t gossip about your roommates
  • Do not take or use your roommates’ clothing, food, products, etc. without permission
  • Set boundaries with your roommates early in the relationship
  • Ask your roommates to let you know right away if something you are doing is bothersome
  • Don’t “stew” when something is bothering you; keep the lines of communication open at all times
  • Don’t expect your roommates to always be in good moods
  • Treat your roommates with respect
  • Show appreciation for your roommates
  • As a group, you and your roommates should clearly express your expectations of one another
