For those in shared living spaces, college move-in day is the kickoff to one big, 10-month-long sleepover. It’s a time to start fresh, get to know new roommate(s) and friends on a deeper level, and establish new routines and traditions that will make your space feel like home. Whether you’re rooming with your bestie, getting a house with a big group, or paired with a stranger, living with others isn’t always easy — but it’s important to remember that having a roommate can be super fun. It teaches you about compassion and compromise, and you’ll probably learn a lot about yourself along the way. 

So, as you begin this new journey, you’re probably going to want to share this exciting life update with the world — and what better way to do that than with a hard launch on Instagram? Here are some Instagram caption ideas for a fun roomie reveal.
