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 don't mind if it's a shared or a private. But if it's a shared one, I need to give you some information what my hobbits and hobbies are. First and the most important thing is I'm a non-smoking person so I want a non-smoking roommate either. I like playing guitar so it's better if my roommate won't mind playing guitar. Also I'm a morning person and so I want a similar person. That's all, thank you.

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.
