For most American college students, spending your freshman year in a shared dorm room is virtually a rite of passage.
But that's not the case for British college students, who get their own private rooms.
All that money American students pay to go to college, and they have to share rooms. It's disgraceful 😩— BUFFEYSHA (@petitetweeter_) August 13, 2017
the fact that americans fork out so much for uni and then have to share a room with some rando is unreal— ḃridie (@gothsonthebeach) September 17, 2017
If uni meant sharing a room in the UK I'd NEVER HAVE GONE & would've gone straight to work as an eg blacksmi - wait what point am I making— Sarah Perry (@SarahGPerry) September 7, 2017
And that whole SOCK ON THE DOOR thing is that REAL??— Sarah Perry (@SarahGPerry) September 7, 2017

I shared a room for three years! It's a way for privileged 18 year olds to have to learn how to live with people and not be a dick about it.— Fiona Zublin (@bear_foot) September 7, 2017
Honestly, it isn’t that bad. Having a roommate was one the best things about my college life. It forces you out of your comfort zone.— | Kimberly | (@since_mcmxcviii) September 20, 2017

The other option is paying 3x as much for a private room and still having to share a bathroom with 2 other people...— Hana Aisha Waheed (@Hanabanana_xo) September 20, 2017
