Find a College Roommate
If the idea of living with a total stranger sounds terrifying, you might want to check out URoomSurf, a website that helps students find a good "match" in a roommate. To get started, choose your college network and create a profile. Next, fill out a questionnaire covering study habits, overnight guests, tidiness, politics, religion and other topics. Then, you'll receive a list of other students who registered on the site, ranked by compatibility. Once you find a good match, you can submit a mutual roommate request to your school.
