Having roommates is a great way to help combat housing costs and help you create a community and social network off campus! Perhaps you have just started your housing search, and you already have a couple of buddies who want to move in with you. If that is your situation, great! Make sure you check out our housing locator website and filter through the options to best suit your needs!
Perhaps you are in your housing search, and do not think you can pay the amount of rent a certain place you are interested in is asking. What is a possible solution? Find roommates to help you out!
To help you begin looking for roommates, check out this Roommate Questionnaire – Who Will You Live With to help you ask the best questions in finding potential roommates. This will help you get an idea of what you are looking for in a potential roommate.
If you cannot meet with people in person immediately, know that on our Off-Campus Housing Database (och.gmu.edu) you can search for roommates once you have signed up for an account. Need help knowing how to create an account? Check out our handy guide on how to search for housing here.
