If they want to evict us because of our roommate, what are our options?

Long story short. Our roommate has made her room an absolute mess and has made our apartment almost unlivable. I don't want to hear the "you picked her" bullshit because she was perfect for the few months. Now its all gone downhill.

If they want to evict all 3 of us due to her own actions and not ours, what are our options? It's not our fault we're getting evicted and don't want our credit to be affected by her actions

Update:

When referring to her mess, I mean her room. And making our apartment unlivable is by the smell.

    All tenants on the same lease are seen as 1 entity under the law. When a roommate violates the lease then you ALL get evicted. They will not evict just her unless she is on a seperate lease.

    Apartments don't evict people because it's dirty.

    If the common area is dirty and all roommates don't like it like that, then the roommates clean it.

    -- if this roommate doesn't do their work, then the others will pick up the slack = just part of living in a multiple roommate situation.
