Report Question for current students: how do most students choose to house during medical school? in University of Western Ontario Medical School Posted May 17 My roommates are my closest friends in the class but we became friends before we became roommates. Are you close with anyone in the class of 2025 from undergrad / orientation events / interview prep etc? If so, try to room with them. Would not recommend living alone because of the cost, it's fine to room with any random med student if the above doesn't apply to you. Don't incur too much debt, it's the last thing you're thinking about now but interest kills.
