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!

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

I need a non-smoking accommodation. And I prefer to share the kitchen with non-meat-eating flatmates because I'm a vegetarian. I'd love to live off-campus if it's close to city center. I really mind sharing facilities, so I would like to request a single room with a bathroom and the kitchen.

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 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.

I prefer to get up early and want to share with other morning people. I don’t smoke, but I don’t mind smoking or non-smoking accommodation. My roommate's food preferences don't matter, too, if she won’t try to change mine. The most important thing for me is a sensible measure of communication, the opportunity to relax in silence, so the ideal roommate is a friendly introvert, who respects the personal space of the neighbor.

Since I will not describe myself as a talkative person, I will say prefer to share the room with a quiet roomate. Additionally, I wake up early every day an exercise after have eaten a healthy breakfast. Therefore, it would be better to share the room with someone with the same routines and way of living. Finally, I do not smoke hence to share the room with a non-smoker is a must.
