How To Bond With Your Roommates

Have you been having trouble bonding with your roommates? It can be difficult to relate to your fellow room/cluster mates. Sometimes, finding activities to do together can improve your relationship. Here are a few ways you can connect with your roomies:


Painting is a fun and relaxing way to connect with your roommates. Think about a common theme or image that you could hang in your living space!


Cooking together can be fun, even if no one is good at it! You can experiment with your cooking skills and collaborate together. In the end, you can bond over a home cooked meal!

Explore The City

The city offers so many affordable activities that are exciting and fun! Go to nearby museums on free days or explore tourists sites! 

Watch Movies

Investing in a projector or a TV is great for watching movies together. Try setting up a movie day every week when everyone is free and start watching a series together!

Go Shopping

You could never go wrong with shopping. Not only is it something that most people enjoy, but it is also a great way to learn more about your roommates. Whether it's just for fun, or just going to grab a few groceries, shopping brings people together.
