Introduction  An innovative matching service, Roomsurf allows high school and college students to identify and, when possible, request a particularly compatible roommate. Roomsurf invites users to take a survey that quantifies certain living preferences, such as need for personal space.

Moving into a Dorm  When moving into a dormitory room, it is essential to establish personal boundaries and guidelines for sharing space from the start. For example, roommates should discuss what each person prefers in regard to the sharing of clothes and other personal items. If one person is comfortable with the idea of common property, but the other is not, it is best to avoid conflict and keep individual items separate.

Conclusion  In some instances, however, roommates can best maintain harmony by compromising on a debated issue. For example, if one person prefers to study with music and the other does not, the music fan may invest in headphones so as not to disturb the roommate's studying. The overriding goal should be to maintain peace and respect between those living in the room.
