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.

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.

Submitted by joselo on Fri, 08/01/2021 - 22:21

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.

I would like to have a Single room with a bathroom. I mind sharing facilities so I will request a room with no shared bathroom. I have a special need for the food, I'm allergic in nuts so I want to be sure, that my meals won't include any nuts ingredients. Usually, I stay up late because I study at night so I would like to share the apartment with someone who isn’t a morning person. I love swimming and I have a problem with my back pain, so I want to have access to the swimming pool. I'm ready to pay extra fees for the pool. I would like to share the apartment with non-smoking, reasonable, tidy and quiet flatmates.

Being a respecting person of personal space myself, it is obvious that a talkative and nosy person will never be a suitable match as my flatmate. I believe that having a like-minded flatmate is just as valuable as finding a soulmate. A person who has a comfortable level of openness blended together with an appropriate amount of maturity to share the chores and stories is whom I am looking for.

Submitted by Phan Bao Dung on Tue, 04/08/2020 - 18:41

I like everything neat and tidy so I prefer to share my house or flat with other people the same as me. I only share the living room and the kitchen because all three bedrooms in the flat are en suite. I don't care if my roommate is a vegetarian or not, a night owl, or an early bird but necessarily a non-smoker. I hope my flatmates to be honest, friendly, diligent, and especially good at foreign languages. I can learn a lot of things from them.

Eek! It's a tough question. I'm kind of introvert person so I'm not a pally kind of guy if you ask. No, I like to talk to someone, share some funny stuff or laugh at something but I like to be alone sometimes. I like reading or listening to music without anybody. So I glad I didn't share a room with someone in my university days. If I had to? Well, it's definitely should be a morning person, I get up quite early and it's good to feel comfortable and not trying to stay quiet. Non-smoker, of course. As for me, I'm a social smoker and can treat myself with a cigar in the company but I hate cigarette smoke. And of course, it must be someone with sense of humor. I can't share the room with someone boring ))

Submitted by Dastenova Firuza on Sun, 12/07/2020 - 17:38

I would like to share a room first of all with responsible people. I hate irresponsibility. I also like people who eat healthy food and nonsmokers. Living with funny and positive people is useful for health too.
