7 Types of Roommates – Which One Are You?

Isn’t it such an unfortunate life knowing that you can’t afford to live alone? You’re literally forced into a shared living accommodation the minute you leave your siblings. This is more of a nightmare for students who don’t even have siblings. Welcome to the real world, my friend. Here are some of the different types of roommates you will experience in university!

The Lost Cause

This roommate would actually die during the zombie apocalypse. They don’t know how to do anything for themselves. They will most definitely finish university with the limited skills they had going into it. This roommate will have their mother on speed dial just to help her make a decision on what to eat. Don’t get me wrong, I love my mom, but if I called her every time I had a problem, she would block my number.

The Passive-Aggressive Note Writer

I swear this roommate asks for sticky notes as a gift during the holidays. You will find endless passive-aggressive messages that collectively sum up that you’re a garbage human being. They will never confront you about their problems in person and you probably just laugh about it now. If you’re petty enough, gift them sticky notes!


This roommate is kind of funny. If they were to remake Casper the Ghost, they would be the main character. They’re literally never around and 97% of the time you don’t even know where they go. They show up once every few months to do laundry or sleep for a couple of hours. They aren’t the worst roommate because at least you have all the space to yourself!

Hermit the Frog

Straight up, this roommate needs to go make some friends. How can they possibly have nothing going on in their life? They’re home every minute of the day that you almost want to ask them if they’re still enrolled in school.

Opposites Don’t Attract
Whoever created those little roommate questionnaires definitely wanted to see chaos happen. Your roommate is the complete opposite of you and refuses to find common ground. Everything you do is wrong because it’s not how they’d do it and there’s no sense in trying to embrace the differences. For those of you who have the option to switch roommates, congratulations!

The Frat Boy
Your roommate may not be in a fraternity, but they definitely should be. They are ready to party any hour of the day, seven days a week. It could be a Wednesday and they will start drinking to celebrate the fact that it’s #WomenCrushWednesday. This roommate isn’t so bad because at least you’ll always have someone down to get wild with!

The Best Roommates

This roommate will be your best friend for life. They fit your lifestyle and you both are always on the same page. If you’ve met this person, hold on to them because there are some strange people out in the world!

You will definitely meet more than just the few described above. Remember that these different types of roommates are all apart of the university experience! You’ll only ever have to go through this once (hopefully!) so enjoy all the strange roommates you live with!
