If you have decided that living off campus is right for you, you may have to get a roommate so that you can share expenses associated with the apartment. Here are a few things to help you determine if a specific roommate is right for you.
Just because someone is your best friend does not mean they will make a good roommate. The person you choose to be your roommate should have similar values and have similar ideas about saving money, cleanliness, and noise. While there are many exciting things that happen while you are attending university classes, your ultimate goal is to graduate and use that education to build a career. This means that you need a home where you can focus on studying. If your roommate constantly has guests over, plays loud music, doesn’t pay their bills, and never cleans, you are not going to be able to focus on studying.
