If you have a roommate these tips are for you.

  1. Don’t take anything without asking: nobody likes their things taken without permission; ask to borrow and if they agree, take care of it! You’d want the other person to do the same.
  2. Respect others’ things: Respect their food and anything they have bought.
  3. Respect the spaces: dividing up storage spaces, such as the pantry, the fridge, or the closet and bathroom (if they are shared), is the best option for them to be equitable.
  4. Clean up what you use: Clean and put back in its place everything you use.
  5. Take care of the bathroom: If you know someone else who shares this space, leave it the same way you would like to find it.
  6. Designate times: If someone is using the washing machine and dryer every day to clean a minimum amount of clothes, come to an agreement on how often each can use the washing machine.
  7. Don’t invite friends without warning: Nothing worse than coming home tired and finding strangers in your apartment. Or you’re in the worst mood and suddenly your roommate falls with people; warn them!
  8. Don’t make noise if your roommate is sleeping: Respect the space you are in since it is shared, it’s horrible to wake up on Sunday with loud songs or out-of-tune screams.
  9. Don’t enter another room without announcing yourself: If a door is closed, even if it is the door to their bedroom, make sure to knock before bursting in.
  10. Be patient and tolerant: It is difficult to find another person with the same tastes, hobbies, or way of thinking, so it is essential to learn to be tolerant and always talk when an uncomfortable situation arises. Communication will make for a better coexistence.
