It does sound like this is largely a behavioral problem - but the cat should be checked by a vet to be sure there are no underlying medical causes.

Often cats will pee/poop on such things as bed or clothing because these objects have a strong smell, and they are trying to show that they "own" the territory and not you. The advice you have been given is excellent - you can also use plastic carpet runners turned upside down over your bed for a bit - cats hate those little "hook" thingies on their paws. The most important thing to do is to create as much discomfort as possible, but not to do anything that would connect you to the discomfort - such as you yelling or screaming or hitting the cat.

There is a product called Cat Attract Litter that may help your roomate re-train the cat to the box. Also there are medications vets can prescribe that can help ease the anxiety that causes marking.

Good luck!

>>I do have a strange thought/recommendation. Pick up some astro-turf mats from Walmart or somewhere (cheap fake grass welcome mats) and lay them across your bed after you make it. Should only take a few seconds to do so. Make it a new "bedspread". Still close your door, but the cat will not like the feel of it and will probably stay off your bed if you accidently have your door open. Hopefully after a while, she will avoid your bed altogether and you don't have to do this for long. It may take a few times, tho.
