Avoid a horror roommate!

Those roommate horror stories youíve heard donít have to happen to you. Instead, try these tips that I have compiled to help you get through four years of residence-hall life.

Communication is key. If you have a problem, speak up about it. Communication doesnít mean leaving your roommate a Post-It Note when youíre upset. You both need to sit down and talk your problems through. This helps you avoid the problem of your roommate finding out about it through friends or suitemates. Remember, your resident advisors or don, will be trained to as mediators. They will be more than happy to sit in on discussions if you need them.

Sometimes itís helpful to think what exactly the problems are that youíre having with your roommate and write a list for your own benefit. This will help you organize your thoughts and present them tactfully.

When living with a roommate, itís absolutely essential to develop some house rules. These can include guidelines about quiet time, cleanliness or borrowing each otherís things. Laying down guidelines right away can drastically improve your living situation.

Be considerate. Consideration for each other means respecting the other personís self, space and belongings. You will be expected to live in cramped quarters for many months, so itís crucial for you to abide by the Golden Rule. We all know it: Treat others as you would have them treat you. If you give respect, you will receive respect in return. Try to be especially alert to each otherís need for space and quiet time. Understand, however, that sometimes people may not even be aware of things they do to bug you and vice versa. For example, a person might have a nervous habit of tapping a pencil while she reads. She might be oblivious to it while it drives her roommate crazy. Communicate with each other about how you can show consideration and respect.

Roommate....ahhh....ADI hope u r reading ths re..neways frm the pics that i have posted in photo blogs, u ppl can guess how much fun i had during my hostel life. I got the best roommate dat i could hope for. Be it music or sports, we shared a common opinion. We cracked best of the pjs and played some real crazy pranks. We fought and we laughed together. It was great. I must say that the key to having good time with ur roommate is to be considerate. Very rightly said sweta. You need not to be fussy about small issues. Just chill and enjoy ur hostel life
