    Looking for a word.

    If I am sharing my room with a girl => I can call her my roommate.
    If this girl and I are in the same school => we are schoolmate.
    If we are in the same class so we are classmate.

    My question is: If my colleague and I are sharing a office which word should I call him/her ? Is there a word like "officemate"?

    Thank you very much.

    Yes, There is a word "officemate" defined in Wiktionary. But "colleague" is most appropriate. Alternatively, you can call co-worker or fellow worker.
