Living with a Friend

Some of you may live with someone you already know. It could be a friend, someone from school, a cousin, etc. If this is true for you, it is really important that you think about how this is going to work, as you begin your time here at McMaster. Being roommates is very different from being friends with someone. It isn’t uncommon for friends to make assumptions about each other, and to then find out that those assumptions were incorrect as they watch each other navigate new friendships and experiences. Your relationship will change over the course of the year – with positive and frank conversation; this change will make you stronger friends.
