College Roommate Horror Stories

Comments 49

  1. one of my housemates in college decided she wanted to brew her own kombucha. she got a scoby, named it, put it in some tea and left it in a jar on our counter. i think she did it wrong and it ended up stinking so bad that i could smell it in my room. my room was also right by the laundry room and so i asked people not to do laundry after like 11 so i could sleep since the washer knocked against my wall, and she frequently did. she also made fun of my accent and wouldn't stop talking about gary johnson (this was during the 2016 election)

  2. i lived with a girl who was a super senior (an extra year of college) when i was a freshman. she smoked cigarettes in the room and would throw them away in the trash can under my bed, she only did that twice. besides that she was alright but i felt bad that i would come in pretty late but she swore she never heard me. the much worse part of freshman year was my neighbor. she lived in a single and her bed was against my wall and at 6am she would play some christian tv show or radio show insanely loud for HOURS and would not answer the door for two weeks, not even to the RA. my roommate had her bf over once and i had probably gotten 2 hours of sleep a night maximum bc of this neighbor and i was also sick and it happened again after two weeks and i completely broke down, sobbing and everything bc i was so exhausted (yes i tried headphones). finally my RA (who i ADORE) got her to stop and i finally could sleep. that doesnt compare to my crazy sophomore year living with 12 other girls

  3. I was in a unit with 3 random โ€˜girls.โ€™ one was a 52 year old woman who would walk outside and yell at the people walking by, wash her clothes by hand in the tub and hang them on the outside stairs to dry, and somehow burned her food and set off the fire alarm every time she cooked (one time was at 2 am ๐Ÿ™„). One of the other girls left. The last girl, who Iโ€™d never had problems with, POOPED on the floor right outside the bathroom door while I was in the shower.

    I couldnโ€™t get out of the lease so I just moved back home, continued to pay rent, and commuted an hour to school every morning ๐Ÿ™ƒ

  4. Oddly enough, I had a better roommate experience with random strangers than with a high school friend I had picked to be with. Needless to say, the high school friend and I are no longer friends.

  5. One of my cousins old collage roommates had PTSD from something that happened to her so every night she had to wear a straight jacket and tied to the bed to keep her from hurting anyone in her sleep. She ended up having to move out due to the complaints and other roommates fearing for their safety๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

  6. I had a roomate who would run every morning, but only had one set of running cloths. She would put the sweaty cloths on the heater to dry them during the week. She only washed them once a week on the weekend. The room would smell because she is drying her sweaty cloths on the heater.

  7. I was really, really unstable when I was living in the college dorms and my roommate at the time requested to be switched to a different dorm away from me ๐Ÿ™ˆ on the bright side, I got my own room ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿป
