21 Questions to Get to Know Your Roommates


Believe it or not, there’s more to your roommates besides their cleanliness, take out orders, and morning routine.

Since most of us are spending a great deal more of our time at home due to COVID-related restrictions, we put together a fun list of questions to help you and your roommates get to know one another!

Whether you answer a question a night or open up a bottle of wine and conquer the entire list in one sitting, we guarantee that your roommates are not quite who you expected them to be.
