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 want to share my apartment with someone who is a greedy reader and has a sense of humour.I could put up with a talkative person but a smoking one.

I am not a talkative person also not so good at communicate with others so I prefer to share a room with someone that'll respect other's personal space but with a reasonable idea of it, not too much

I would like to share a house with nearly the same as like me. I love travelling and talking about the future plan. And then, I like to learn different language. If possible, I want to live with the person from different country and different language. I want to learn their language and their culture, their tradition.

I would like to share room with people who have same characters as me. I don't smoke so I would prefer non-smoking accomodation. In addition, I usually go to bed early so I would prefer to share with other people who don't like late nights either.

On honest, I'm a vegetarian, a morning guy and a non-smoking person so I would like to share my accommodation with a person who like non-meat-eating and be able to wake up early to exercise with me. I'm also looking forward to live a optimistic and glass-half full person as we can talk about positive story.

I'd rather have an ensuite room in a campus among the people because I would like to meet people and make a friend. I am an early bird person and go bed early as well. I would prefer share a kitchen with non smoker and healthy eater person. I am a computer user and I play music instrument too.
