In the 30+ years since leaving home, I've never had a roommate or housemate. This fall, I'll have a housemate with the same history. We'd like to sit down and discuss some ground rules for living in the same house.
So what do we talk about? What are the typical issues that housemates ought to resolve to prevent problems later? (Dishes? Chores? Overnight guests?) Have you proven arrangements for equitable settlement of these issues? [more inside]

My housemate makes loud dissonant synthesizer music. I need to wake up very early in the morning, an would love an afternoon nap. What should I do? [more inside]

Another roommate gone bad situation. She walked out on a lease, left utilities bills behind, cleaned out the apartment and took a TV and DVR that didn't belong to her. Ugh. [more inside]

Questions about grad school housing: 1. Anybody know a good site to find apartments on? I'm moving to Mt. Pleasant, MI in August and need a place for me to live that takes cats. I tried rent.com but its not helping much.
2. Are there any sites that help match you up with roommates?
3. Living with your classmates? High compatibility or just plain dumb (I'll be in a class of 7) [more inside]
