The secret to being the GREATEST housemate ever!

By BzSarah 09 Jun 2014

Well it's not really a secret but...

Don't be THAT guy (or girl) who continuously tests the patience of everyone in your house or flat!

(Ok, our example may be a little extreme) 

Here are some wise words of undisputed wisdom:

 

  • It's going to be everyone's home for the next year so it's important everyone feels like it's their home! 

  • Lots of people are in the same boat as you, don't just sit in your room feeling sorry for yourself - make a real effort to go out and meet some new people! Also be sure to give people their space when they need it.

  • The most common source of annoyance, believe it or not, is the washing up! Get a rota sorted asap!

  • If you haven't all agreed to share your food and drink, don't help yourself to a housemate's tea and biscuits, drink their beer, or eat their pasta - it won't go unnoticed!

  • Most people like a bit of loud music, but not everybody likes the same loud music as you. Try to keep your sound down, or maybe wear headphones if you have them.

  • If you can see a conflict is brewing (dirty dish related or otherwise), bring it up with your flatmates and discuss it before it gets out of hand.
