How do people generally find compatible roommates?

Some first-year Jewish students live with peers they knew from home. Upperyear students often meet their future roommates in residence or through classes or co-curricular involvements. Western Hillel and Hillel Ontario also offer ‘Classifieds’ Facebook groups where students can seek roommates as well as furniture for their apartments.

Paid Internships
