How To Find Roommates And Housing For First-year Students

Most first-year students who applied for the Fall 2022 semester will be getting their admission decisions very soon. One of the following steps is to find roommates and housing. It can be overwhelming to look for roommates for a place you've never been. This will likely be the first time living out of your parent's home and taking on the responsibilities for daily chores. It's best to find roommates who are responsible enough to share all the work; however, it's challenging to know which will work and which ones won't; it's a hit or miss.

Several students decide to live with people they already know, perhaps from the same high school or country going to the same university abroad. This is a great way to start your life abroad, so you feel comfortable with the people you live with. But make sure to also live with people from different countries to experience other cultures and expand your horizons.

Many universities will require you to live on-campus for the first one to two years. If that's the case, then the university's housing department will send you a form to learn more about how you are as a person. They will ask you things like when you go to bed, whether you like sci-fi, comedy, etc. They use your personality traits to match you with other students who

might be good fits as roommates.

If you do not have on-campus housing, then the easiest way to find roommates and accommodation is to meet people on the Facebook communities at your university and find an apartment

off-campus. All universities should have multiple apartment communities near the campus to lease an entire apartment and share the cost among your roommates. Good luck!
