We asked a few Resident Advisors what questions new roommates should ask themselves and here is what they came up with:
- What conditions do you need to sleep under? (a fan on/off? background noise? etc)
- What do you use your room space for? (do you plan on doing schoolwork? etc)
- How do you decompress at the end of the day? Week?
- What chores do you hate doing? (this will help get the conversation about cleaning started and hopefully lead to a respectful division of labor)
- Do you have an emotional support animal or any other kind of pet, including fish?
- Do you frequently cook in your room, or do you eat out or go to Dhall (Ponce Dining Hall)? (talking about stored food, shared food, etc)
- Do you use the overhead light or secondary sources of light? At certain hours?
- What is your class schedule? How early will you be waking up/getting ready?
- How do you want to communicate conflicts? (in person, texts, sticky notes, etc)
- What is your nightly routine? Will you be coming in and out of the room late?
- How do you feel about people coming over throughout the day? The night? Are weekends different?
- Is there any medical information that I should know about?
