The Reality of Roommate Matching in Tuscaloosa

Let us be real: you will be living with a stranger. Sharing an apartment with someone you do not know will require a lot of communication and adjustment. Even in the best experiences, conflicts are unavoidable. Amenities like private bathrooms can make things a bit smoother, but there will likely be some conflict regardless. If you do not answer the questionnaire honestly, you could be paired with someone that is not right for you and it can cause serious issues. It is important that you answer your roommate matching section in your application truthfully to be paired with the best person and have the best roommate experience. 

Additional Tips

One you are assigned your apartment and you receive your roommate's contact information, reach out to them to break the ice. Do not be afraid to ask questions and to set some rules. If you live with more than one person, make a group chat. This will make it easier and less awkward when you finally meet your new roommate(s).
