Alright, here's the gist: I haven't seen my roommate in three days (Tuesday til now), almost exactly. The day I last saw him (I saw around Tuesday at noon) I hadn't seen him since the Thursday before, but he had left early for the weekend and said that he had a doctors appointment on Monday for something, so that wasn't a big deal at the time.

Honestly, he's almost always gone. I might see him twice a day on average for like 15 minutes or something. I typically stay up until 1 or 2 o clock, and I've seen him come back to the dorm room to go to bed maybe four times. Most of the time, he comes back ridiculously late and sleeps in until 1PM or so, skipping all of his morning classes. I think usually he sleeps in (after I'd already woken up) longer than the total time I had slept, if that makes sense.


But it makes me wonder.... when should you actually start, like, talking to people about your roommate being missing? A bunch of his friends came up to my dorm room on Wednesday and asked if I'd seen him, but I said I hadn't. I haven't seen them since either.


and no, I didn't kill him.

So yeah, roommates.

I wish I knew my roommate before hand, but all my friends here bitched about the extra cost of the dorm I'm in.

I don't have his number. They give out numbers during christmas break, but the roommate I was supposed to have dropped out and he took advantage of the opportunity and moved in. Honestly I don't even remember his name half the time, he's pretty much never around.

Sounds like your roommate thinks that university is all about partying and doing whatever the fuck you want (including, you know, flunking classes). I'd just talk to him when you next see him and be like, "Dude, you barely even sleep here? What is going on?" Then, after that conversation, if he doesn't change his behavior, then ignore it. If it's a huge bother to you, then ask for a new roommate for next semester.

Honestly, he kinda said that that was the way he was originally, so I'm not going to be confrontational because it doesn't bother me in the slightest. I was just wondering what I should do if I come back on Monday and he still isn't back by Monday or Tuesday.

This happened to a friend of mine a few years ago. His housemate was later found dead. Contact someone.

You could always talk to your RA and say, "My roommate's been missing for a few days. He said he'd be back by Monday. I mean, he typically isn't here a lot, but this is kind of worrying." If your RA thinks it's serious, then they'll know what steps to take to make sure your roommate is, say, lying a ditch somewhere hungover.

I was going to stay with a few friends of mine but then they dropped out of Engineering and stayed close to our home town so I had to stay with two dudes that I didn't know, everything turned out great though, they are awesome, sadly the one that I liked the most dropped out of college and went to the army, but the other one is pretty cool too. Man I was scared the first time I was going to meet them, since I'm pretty picky with people.

My CA (RA, basically) usually keeps herself pretty busy, but I'll see if I can talk to her about it sometime today.

I do, I just don't really know how much of a big deal it is. It's not a huge jump between being gone one day occasionally to two days, but now that its the third day I'm much more worried.

I should mention that when I said this, I meant that it didn't bother me that he's gone most of the time. This is a different situation.

Of course I didn't, but how would you feel if you were joking and the guy was seriously injured or some shit? Jokes are cool and all, but not right now.

Its honestly possible. He had come to me originally saying that he would like a room in Thorne and that he had talked to residence and they'd said that my dorm room was the only one open. He also said that he had ok'd it with them and I kinda just trusted him. I talked to our CA about it and she said that she would set up a meeting with us later, so I'm not sure what she knows about it.

I know this sounds lame but you it never hurts to have an emergency contact list for you and your roommates. In college one of my friends had sickle cell anemia and she had a really bad attack and had to go to the hospital. She was all medicated so she didn't even know where she was and we couldn't unlock her cellphone but because we had all made a contact list we were able to call up her parents to come by. If you know the kids house number call and ask the parents.
That being said, I had a friend who would notoriously disappear for days on end then come back like nothing ever happened. If he's one of those people than what can you really do?

It's also possible that the OP is developing schizophrenia and is having vivid hallucinations and delusions of his "roommate". It commonly develops in young males in their late teens/early twenties, just saying.

actually what if he's just a hobo that cleverly is living in your room? he might even be one of those crazy schizohobos, creepily watching you and jacking it while you're sleeping.

If you rarely see him it's probably not a big deal. It would be something to worry about if you saw him all the time and then stopped.
