I played football for my sixth-form school and I am hoping to join a university team. I'm a morning person and I get up early to train and go to the gym. So I would prefer to share with other people who don't like late nights either! Also I am vegetarian and, if possible, I would prefer to share a kitchen with other non-meat eaters.


  1. If the form is on paper, write clearly. Use capital letters if your handwriting isn't clear.
  2. If there is not much space to write, make a list instead of writing full sentences.
  3. Check it. It's easy to make small mistakes!

If possible, I want to share room with a beautiful girl who do exercises everyday so I could be affected. About food, I don't like snack so it's better if her don't like it, too.

I would like to have a Single room with a bathroom. I mind sharing facilities so I will request a room with no shared bathroom. I have a special need for the food, I'm allergic in nuts so I want to be sure, that my meals won't include any nuts ingredients. Usually, I stay up late because I study at night so I would like to share the apartment with someone who isn’t a morning person. I love swimming and I have a problem with my back pain, so I want to have access to the swimming pool. I'm ready to pay extra fees for the pool. I would like to share the apartment with non-smoking, reasonable, tidy and quiet flatmates.

Being a respecting person of personal space myself, it is obvious that a talkative and nosy person will never be a suitable match as my flatmate. I believe that having a like-minded flatmate is just as valuable as finding a soulmate. A person who has a comfortable level of openness blended together with an appropriate amount of maturity to share the chores and stories is whom I am looking for.

I like everything neat and tidy so I prefer to share my house or flat with other people the same as me. I only share the living room and the kitchen because all three bedrooms in the flat are en suite. I don't care if my roommate is a vegetarian or not, a night owl, or an early bird but necessarily a non-smoker. I hope my flatmates to be honest, friendly, diligent, and especially good at foreign languages. I can learn a lot of things from them.

I would like to share room or flat or house who has same characters with me if possible. I don't like those people who likes late night, I also don't like talkative people and I can't sleep if the light is on.

Eek! It's a tough question. I'm kind of introvert person so I'm not a pally kind of guy if you ask. No, I like to talk to someone, share some funny stuff or laugh at something but I like to be alone sometimes. I like reading or listening to music without anybody. So I glad I didn't share a room with someone in my university days. If I had to? Well, it's definitely should be a morning person, I get up quite early and it's good to feel comfortable and not trying to stay quiet. Non-smoker, of course. As for me, I'm a social smoker and can treat myself with a cigar in the company but I hate cigarette smoke. And of course, it must be someone with sense of humor. I can't share the room with someone boring ))

I would like to share a room first of all with responsible people. I hate irresponsibility. I also like people who eat healthy food and nonsmokers. Living with funny and positive people is useful for health too.

- Shared room (with one other student) - Off-campus - No smoke I like to play videos game, do things on the computer, listen to music, and love to travel. My English is still not good, it’s better if my flatmates have the same level as me so we can practice together. I prefer to stay up late, so please allocate me with other people who have no problem with that. Also, I want the place to be quiet, people can listen to music but not too loud.
