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!

I'd prefer to share a room with people who are quiet, aren't nosey, neat and tidy. I'd prefer to have a separate bathroom although this may not possible for budget friendly accomodation. If I were to share a room, I would love to share with people from different countries, this could be an advantage for me to know more about other culture, customs and language. It would be awesome

I prefer to share accommodation with quiet people, no smokers or alcoholics, people who respect my space and personal things. I love to sleep for that reason and prefer roommates who don't regularly come home late.

I would like to share a flat two or three people who live from different countries when I live in abroad. So we can share our nature and get experiences from them. I am a quiet person so I don't like too noisy people, I don't mind stay up late or watching TV. And I think we need to clean our flat equally and respect to each other.

If I am in a foreign country for the purpose of learning their language, I prefer to share acommodation with one to two people because communication can help me a lot to improve my language skills, espacially listening and speaking. However, to avoid potential conflicts and disagrements, I would like to be with people who have respect for the others. Also personal hygiene is an important issue for me. I would like them to keep the place ( facilities and kitchen) clean after their use. I don’t smoke so, I cant share acommodation with smokers. Another point is that I don’t like noisy people but it doesn’t bother me if they stay up late watching TV or studying.

Sharing the house is an essential issue because when people stay with another person you have to be in accordance with the other individual's preferences. Otherwise, rise a lot of problems. if a person wants to refrain from these problems, the person has to choose good behavior roommates. ı would like to share accommodation with a good accordance person and night owl. A person who loves to eat meat is preferences
