Here are some ways you can survive roommates!
Respect and communication
Often when we’re from different cultures, it can be difficult to effectively communicate with others. This can be an opportunity to practice patience and be open and understanding of the differences between you and your roommates.
Sharing is caring
Besides from sharing the cost of rent or personal space, it’s good practice to share the household duties amongst you and your roommates. Come up with an agreement on who does what and when so that no one feels like their taking on most of the work.
Usually when you have roommates, space is limited. So be attentive to how much space your personal belongings take up. Make your home as livable as possible not only for you but for others who share the space.
A busy school life can sometimes mean that our living area is not always clean. If you make a mess, take the time out to tidy up. It makes living in shared space more bearable.
