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 try to get up at the same time every day. It's early in the morning, so I prefer to share a room with a person who is also an early bird. It will be great if I can live with a creative person like an artist, a designer or a photographer, because I'm a creative person, too and I think it'll be nice to have the same roommate. It can also be anyone who prefers to lead a healthy lifestyle.
