Being A Considerate Roommate During COVID-19

Set boundaries for working from home

If you’re both working from home, you may drive each other crazy pretty quickly. Create rules that can minimize frustration. Perhaps one rule is that nobody takes work calls in the communal spaces – calls have to be taken in one’s private room. That way, the other roommates feel free to roam about the kitchen and living room whenever they want. Work clutter, like documents and pens and supplies, should be contained to a designated area. Perhaps that area is in the individual’s private room. If you’re all working on different schedules, be aware of that, so one isn’t being loud late at night or early in the morning when the other needs to sleep.
