Another way of building credit is to have paid off a loan. This shows you are capable of paying, because you have in the past.
A final way of having good credit is to show you have a history of paying your bills on time. Keeping records of your phone bill, for example, or your rent payments if you have an apartment, can prove you are responsible with money.
