    Erm... at most unis you don't have to share a room. Durham's the only one I know where I think they have to share a room for 1 term in the first year (correct me if I'm wrong!)

    Imperial also has sharing halls, you could be sharing a room with 1, or even 2 people

    well if i had to share a room with a gay/bi guy, I would hope he wouldn't get any ideas. Sexuality doesn't make a person any more different, but if they tried to make a move, I would simply express the fact that i'm not interested. If they are persistent however, I would probably put in an application to be relocated. But I doubt anyone would be like that.

    It's funny how straight blokes seem to have a tendency to assume that every gay guy is after their arse (excuse my crassness) - just because somebody is gay does not mean they're interested in you in a sexual way, so don't flatter yourselves!

    If there was those kind of room mates, I would be worried. O well, we just have to respect each other and live with it.

    you would be worried that people who are gay/bi are goin to university and sharing rooms? where else do you think they're (and why should they) goin, they never got round to opening the 'st-police-man-from-the-village-people's college' :eek:

    I'm a straight guy too, but I have noticed that most straight guys do that. It's pretty sad.

    That's right. One can never be too careful with these things! Should you find yourself sharing with a roomie, whose sexuality you have reason to question, you had better play it safe and sleep on your back at all times. :rolleyes: You wouldn't want to awaken to find yourself being buggered... because if he's a poof, he probably wouldn't be able to resist his queer proclivities, yourself as a straight man being just that irresistable to every gay male and heterosexual female, of course.

    What a good way to put the point across. I wouldn't be bothered with sharing a room with someone who is gay (I'm not) but I wouldn't want to share with anyone anyway and thank goodness I won't have to.

    Yea, it's better to get it sorted out first time, because if something were to happen later on, you might find it hard getting out of the situation.

    Then again.... it is obviously the case that if a man is gay he doesn't fancy every other man on the planet. It is also true that every woman does not fancy every man on the planet. Why is it then that you can't have mixed shared rooms?
