It's Officially a housing poll

My roommate moved out over finals week, and as of yet I've got no roommate. I have a few choices for next semester. I'm having problems deciding, because both sides have good arguements for and against them. My choices:
I can consolidate my now single dorm room and live alone, assuring that most of my friends will be in my room all the time, which is ok.

OR I can move in with this girl down the hall, and pay regular dorm fees for next semester. (Girl bio: she's from Wyoming {read: she's NEVER going to be gone on a weekend}, she's a MORNING person {I'm a morning person in the sense that I'm awake at 2 am}, and she keeps her room really really really clean {}).


Here's the facts:

pro:
  • no roommate to keep up late at night or to yell at in the mornings
  • I'd have a lot of space, and an extra bed in my room
  • I wouldn't have the chance (which is extremely high) of getting a super-duper shitty new roommate and being stuck with her all semester.

con:
  • it costs $200

So? Should I move in with the girl? Should I take my chances getting a random roommate? Or should I consolidate and have my own dormroom next semester?

When I was at uni, my roommate was horrendous. I think we may very well have killed each other, had she not moved out.

I loved having my own room...I don't think I could have roomed with somebody.

Nobody wanted to anyway...since I was the "crazy girl at the end of the hall"...

i miss the internet

Kat, lemme throw this at ya:

My boyfriend is only $200 away. So what I spend on next semester could be saved and spent on a trip to see him.

Although... he IS coming to see me for a week, and if I had my own room it'd be FAR more convenient.....{HONK}




Yeah, there's uhh that angle too.

I had the roommate from hell back in college...I swore after that that I would never again have a roommate...even though we had different schedules and didn't see eachother that often, she'd still have loud music going till 3 or 4 am (I went to school in the mornings, she went to school in the evenings) and there wasn't anything management could do about it since she lived with me (we lived in an apartment, not a dorm).

I'd say no roommate

I've got some money saved in the bank...really tempted to hop a plane to Virginia to see John...but I don't know when I'm gonna get a job, so I get nervous spending too much money.

I still say pay extra for a room...it's worth it. You've heard my roommate stories...

Big Grin My opinion as an old person

I am a money saver type person. I'd get a roomie. If the girl down the hall is okay, then I'd pick her instead of some unknown person.

I had pretty good luck with college roomies...only had one bad one and she quit school after only about 2 months. We had had 3 people in our room so when she left it was just the 2 of us. They didn't charge us any extra, though. (Lucky for us)

I always had a roommate all through college. I don't think I would have liked living alone. But that's just me. Everyone is different. maybe people were more normal when i was in school.

Save the money and take the roommate. You will be richer and wise in the end.

I had my own room for 1/3 of my time at college, and loved it. It was always stressful for me to have a roommate because I NEED time alone and like my room a certain way. I think it's worth the extra money to save yourself the stress of having a roommate you don't get along with that well.

After my roomie moved out, I turned out bunkbeds into an elaborate fort. It was really cool!!!!

Good thing I was finally able to sleep in bottom bunk too because sometimes I roll out of bed and fall on the floor.
