“My roommate is making my life a misery”

Hi, I’m a freshman in college and I’m having roommate issues. I have 3 roommates and we live in an apartment-style dorm room, so we each have our own room but we share a living room and bathroom. I love 2 of my roommates but the other one is causing issues.

About a week ago, let’s just say she called me a really rude name. I don’t care if people call me this name in a joking manner, I don’t care if people call me this name and I deserve it, but she wasn’t joking and I didn’t deserve it, so it made me upset.

After that, she said called me the name again. She has also said that I needed be quiet when I checked on my other roommate who screamed in the shower, when she screamed the other day for no reason, so loudly that our RA had to check on us to make sure we were okay, twice.
I hate confronting people and causing conflict, so I don’t know what to do. Also, I can’t move rooms and I’m stuck with her until May. Any advice?

    That is rough. I had bad room mates in college as well. I would pretend like she didn’t exist if it were me until spring, but I’m petty like that.

    How do the other two roommates feel? I would hope that the one that screamed would be on your side.

    Unless she really does something bad you may be stuck with her until the end of the semester. I would definitely write down each abuse, date and time so you have a paper trail just in case. You may think that’s not necessary, but trust me, it is. Having a list of abuses will help you in the long run if you need to report her for anything. It’s time to look up what abuses you can report to your RA.

What do you think?
