- Remember it's only you and one other person in the 2 bedroom apartment. Consider their cleanliness and how comfortable you will be with them if things get a little dirty.
- Also consider each other's social habits. If you like to study a lot and stay up late finishing your work and your roommate like to party until the next morning, you might have conflicting schedules to work out.
- Don't forget about deposits or fees that are required at signing or on move-in day. Since it is a smaller apartment, generally a deposit that is close to half or more of your monthly rent will be due. Be sure to budget well! Check out this website for more helpful hints: Roommate Tips
