Fun Activities to do With Your Roommates

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Murray State chapter.

There is nothing quite like the bond you create with your roommates. In college, the people you live with quickly become your family away from home. Whether you are already best friends with your roommates or are trying to improve the bond between you and your roomies, here are some fun activities you can do together: 

  • A scavenger hunt 

    • While your roommates are out, take out your sticky notes and a pen and get to work. Write some riddles that lead them to different locations around your apartment. Be creative with the final prize. It could be their favorite snack or even a new candle you bought that day!

  • Download a group communications app 

    • Constant communication is key to a strong relationship. Use a fun voice memo app like Cappuccino to get to know each other better. You can use the app to talk about funny things that happened to you during the day or use the built-in prompts that everyone can take turns answering. 

  • Cook a meal 

    • Buy a meal kit or find a yummy recipe on Pinterest and put your roommates to work. After your meal is complete, sit down at the kitchen table and enjoy your masterpiece together. 

  • Have a board game night 

    • Pick up a new or classic board game at the store and challenge your roommates! You can even make a wager for the winner, such as whoever wins Monopoly doesn’t have to do dishes for the next week! 

I hope these activities inspire you to spend some fun time with your roomies and to get to know them better!
