    We asked members of the BuzzFeed Community to share their worst college roommate horror stories, and the responses had our jaws on the floor. Here are some of the most terrifying ones.

    1. "I caught my roommate having sex with her boyfriend on my bed...the day I came home from my beloved grandmother's memorial service.

    "She didn't look me in the eye for the rest of the year."


    2. "My roommate piled miscellaneous items on my face while I was sleeping, and when I unburied myself and sat up, I noticed she was peeing on my bed!

    "Completely confused and in shock, I quickly climbed off the bed and said, 'Do you need me to take you to the bathroom?' She replied, 'No, I don’t need you to because there’s one right here' (as she pointed to my bed)."


    3. "I woke up to my roommate practicing her tap dancing completely topless with just underwear on her bottom half. She was 2 feet from my bed.

    "She said, 'I didn't think it would wake you up.'"


    4. "I started spending the night in my boyfriend's room a few times a week. One time, I came back to my room to find a piece of paper on my bed. In crayon, my roommate wrote, 'I miss the sound of you breathing.' She moved out shortly after."

    5. "One night, I was called by the police because one of my roommates poured piping-hot mashed potatoes on the other's laptop. It was ruined and the girl charged her for it.

    "I moved out after that."


    6. "I walked in one night to find her going through all of my stuff and breaking things — all because she thought I stole her bath towel."

    7. "My roommate boiled her Diva Cup and burned it pretty badly in my favorite pan, which belonged to my dead grandmother."

    8. "My roommates would rather climb over piles of trash in the kitchen than take them out, and when I noted that there were ants in their rooms, they shrugged and said, 'They'll go away when they get bored.'"

    9. "My housemates had a party, and I came in the next morning to find a bucket of vomit under the kitchen table.

    Fox / Via

    "I thought they had cleaned it up, but six months later we were moving out, and guess what I found out on the balcony? The bucket of vomit."


    10. "One of the women in my dorm was storing her used sanitary napkins in the closet instead of throwing them away.

    Fox / Via

    "Her closet started emitting the most godawful smell."


    11. "My first-year roommate got drunk, pissed herself, then blamed it on my emotional-support dog.

    Fox / Via

    "Even after our other roommates reminded her that she'd pissed herself the previous night, she continued to insist it was my dog."

    12. "I reported my roommate for smoking in the room, and to get back at me, she hid her used menstrual products under my bed."

    13. "My first-year roommate got super drunk at a party and couldn't make it to the restroom. She ended up peeing on the floor in our doorway, and I had the pleasure of accidentally stepping in it the next morning."

    Fox / Via

    14. "My roommate took out all the pots and pans, put them in her room, then wrote me a letter about how I was lazy and didn't deserve to use them. They were my pots and pans."

    Fox / Via

    15. "My roommate liked to study to a children's version of "It's a Small World (After All)" on repeat for hours over the speakers.

    Fox / Via

    "I don't know about everyone else, but my personal version of hell is listening to that song endlessly!"


    16. And this: "My dad's roommate story is my favorite. On the second day of school, his roommate's girlfriend was over. They were on the top bunk and started having sex. Apparently, their 'thing' was that she'd pee on him...all while my dad was trying to sleep on the bottom bunk!

    Fox / Via

    "It was so bad that my dad called my grandfather in tears."
