“I knew all of my suitemates before we moved in together, so I thought this was going to be an ideal situation,” Mercedes said. “But it turns out that it’s really not the best fit, and I’m thinking about moving.”
While it’s impossible to get exact numbers, local student housing experts acknowledge that a significant number of Boston college students – perhaps as many as 25% of all undergrads – change their housing arrangements mid-semester at least once while pursuing their degree.
Are you wondering if moving out of your college housing situations is right for you? Here are 3 signs that mean you’ll want to start looking for a new place to stay:
You Don’t Feel Safe Where You Are
If your roommates are engaging in behaviors that make you feel unsafe, that’s not a good place to stay. These behaviors might be directed at you – bullying, threats, unwanted sexual attention – or they may be more general in nature, such as having lots of people you don’t know in the apartment, or other sketchy behaviors.
It’s Impossible to Concentrate – Ever
Everyone likes to have a good time, but a big part of the reason you’re in college is to get an education. That means you’re going to need some time that’s peaceful enough that you can concentrate on reading and doing your schoolwork. If this never, ever happens, it’s time to schedule your student move.
Too Much Tension & Stress
When you’re stressed out, you can’t do your best work. This is important when you’re under a lot of pressure to complete your degree, get into grad school or find a job. Living in a situation where you have a lot of interpersonal conflict or tension can lead to anxiety, depression, and other emotional reactions that can negatively impact your studies.
