Finding a Dormitory Roommate

If you are attending the same school as many of your high school classmates, you may want to consider rooming with someone you're familiar with. Choosing among people you know can be a way to find roommates with whom you can live more agreeably. If you are going to school far away, or you just want the experience of living with someone you know, you are going to need to spend some time looking for a roommate.

There are a number of roommate search tools that can help you find a roommate. Some of the most commonly utilized roommate search options include:

  • The student housing office at your college
  • Your school’s student newspaper
  • Bulletin boards at your school
  • Referrals from friends or relatives who live in the area
  • The local newspaper or online classified advertising listings in your area
  • Craigslist roommates wanted listings
