Questions to Ask Your Roommate

We asked a few Resident Advisors what questions new roommates should ask themselves and here is what they came up with:

  1. What conditions do you need to sleep under? (a fan on/off? background noise? etc)
  2. What do you use your room space for? (do you plan on doing schoolwork? etc)
  3. How do you decompress at the end of the day? Week?
  4. What chores do you hate doing? (this will help get the conversation about cleaning started and hopefully lead to a respectful division of labor)
  5. Do you have an emotional support animal or any other kind of pet, including fish?
  6. Do you frequently cook in your room, or do you eat out or go to Dhall (Ponce Dining Hall)? (talking about stored food, shared food, etc)
  7. Do you use the overhead light or secondary sources of light? At certain hours?
  8. What is your class schedule? How early will you be waking up/getting ready?
  9. How do you want to communicate conflicts? (in person, texts, sticky notes, etc)
  10. What is your nightly routine? Will you be coming in and out of the room late?
  11. How do you feel about people coming over throughout the day? The night? Are weekends different?
  12. Is there any medical information that I should know about?
