Living with strangers definitely comes with some risks; however, sometimes living with your closest friends can be a bad as well — the struggle is real. To help you prepare, here are the types of roommates you may encounter during your college years:

1. The Early Bird

Whether it's early to bed or early to rise (or both), it's important to establish grounds for respect from both parties in these situations. If your Early Bird has 8 a.m. classes and you don't get home from work until 2 a.m., establish quiet hours and be clear about when they are. Make sure to let each other know if one of you gets too noisy.
