Is it possible to get herpes?

I moved into a house with two other girls 3 months ago. We were strangers but we're getting along well. Last night one of the girls confessed to having genital herpes. Am I in danger of getting it if we use the same dishes, shower, and toilet? Or do I literally have to get touched by an oozing sore? What if her vagina has an outbreak and she oozes on the toilet seat? Can I get it that way?
