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.

Tips

  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!

I prefer single room with bathroom. I don't like to share with other. I would like to live quietly. One of my habits is that I sleep off-light at night. If my roommate's habit is different to me, it will not be fine for us. So I more prefer single room.

I would like to share a house with people who are not smoking, and regular in pray and do that five times every day, and people who practice sports every day, and who like playing football, and who follow all matches in the world Championships.
I prefer people who are watching series and films and listens to English music.
I would share facilities with another person, but I would have a private room.

I would like to share a house or flat with a non-smoking person as I do not smoke. I hope my roommate is not an alcoholic since it is hard to live with someone who drunk all the time. Other than these two points, I think I can accept roommates of any style. Whether we have common hobbies is not so important to me, I think we can learn from each other, or maybe I can learn something interesting from my roommates.
