When completing homework or "lighter" work I enjoy a more social environment to study in, however, if I am studying for a big stats exam, I would need a quieter space to study. YesEitherAnyNegotiable depending on type Depends on type of pet because I currently have an 11-month-old kittenNot a good match for meI am moving from CT to the Bay Area in early to mid August. I am very extroverted and enjoy socializing with others both in and out of the home. I am organized and clean, however, do not impose this on others' private space. I do not eat red meat, but do not mind sharing a kitchen with someone who does. I have an 11-month-old kitten named Meeko who is a classifed emotional support cat, meaning under the Federal Housing Act even spaces listed as "no pets" are required to allow him, so this would not hinder our apartment options! He is very social, playful, and snuggly :) I do not, however, believe in keeping in shut in my room so would need a roommate who is okay with him roaming freely throughout our home. In my free time I enjoy hiking/outdoor activities, cycling, cooking, photography/art, and finding fun happy hours! Since I am new to California, I hope to explore and travel locally with my future roommate(s). I have a long-term boyfriend who will be moving out to California within a year, however, he is not moving immediately and therefore won't be included in housing plans. I am hoping to live either in Redwood City, Belmont, or Mountain View. Please reach out to me if you feel we could be a good match!

I am looking for room mates who love dogs but don't have one, since my dog isn't friendly with other dogs (very important!!). I am a pretty chill person and can get along easily with most people. looking to be friends with my housemates, but will respect your space if you prefer so. I have no dietary restrictions, but I don't mind if you do! feel free to text/email me if you are interested ☺️

I am from Philadelphia and am looking to move to the Bay Area in the beginning of August. I would love to live somewhere in between Palo Alto and San Francisco: San Mateo, Redwood City etc. I love live music and would like to have easy access to San Fran for what it offers in terms of music and activities. I love yoga and in the summers I like to go to music festivals. I am pretty laid back and swing in between being introverted and extroverted, but I lean more on the extroverted side. I would love to live with people who are social and like to go out when we can but are also serious about their work like I am. I am always up for movies, hiking, cooking family meals, and dancing. Please feel free to text me--I am really looking forward to moving to the bay area and meeting new people!

I am originally from Florida but currently living and working in Maine. I am planning to move out to the Bay Area late August/early September and am looking for a two bedroom that wouldn't be more than a 20 minute commute (or up to 40 with traffic). I'll also be getting a cat as soon as I move out there :). I am pretty introverted and really value my alone time, but you'd never guess that because I am very outgoing as well. I love to travel and explore so I am really looking forward to moving to the west coast! I am very active and was a competitive swimmer most my life so I love to exercise and a workout/study buddy would be awesome :). I am looking for someone who is focused on school but will also hopefully become a life long friend. Feel free to reach out to me if you think we'd be a good match :) I'm excited to start planning the move and to figure out where I'll be living next year.

I am currently an undergraduate living in Boston and plan to move to the bay area in early-mid august. My main form of transportation is a motorcycle so closer to campus is better. I have a fat grey cat named Koshka who loves people but gets jealous of other cats. I am very extroverted and will probably want to be friends (but I wont force it). I like to cook and have no major dietary restrictions. I am pretty relaxed when it comes to most things, although I am particular about how I clean bathrooms. I play a couple instruments (although probably wont have much time to play them while in school). I plan on maintaining my relationship with my current boyfriend which would mean him visiting me from time to time as well as there being times when I'm away. I am not much of a morning person but I can also sleep through anything so no worries if you are. I am really into true crime so if youre not good with death let me know and I can watch documentaries with headphones. I am fine with any number of roommates and I love having guests. Please reach out to me if you have any questions or think we would work well together (text is probably the best way to get ahold of me).

Not really, but I do love animals!I don't mindHello! I'm currently living in Virginia, VA and I am planning on moving to the Bay Area around mid-August. I was born in Florida, but was raised in Caracas, Venezuela and lived there since 3 years ago when I moved to the United States. I have a small female dog named Athena (she is 5 lbs., yes tiny!). She is a mixed Yorkshire and (maybe) Maltese, spayed, has all of her vaccines, and once she gets to know you she will love you forever. I am currently working as a dog sitter, and I will like to continue doing this in California. However, I'm open to negotiate this. I am passionate about studying and about psychology and I would like for my roommate to have similar interests and goals as me. I like to share and I'm very clean and organize, but I won't mind a little mess. For my hobbies, I like to read (I read a lot, I'm moving with a ton of books, all of them you can read), I love going to the movies, trying new places to eat, and listening to music around the house. I am also some sort of a gamer and my Ps4 and Nintendo Switch will be coming with me and you are also welcome to use them. I like to hang out and enjoy company, but once in a time I do need my alone time, which I can have by being in my room with Athena. I will definitely will like to see the apartment before signing a lease, but I am open to check it over facetime/skype. If you will like to know more or think will click, please text me!

I've lived in Norcal for most of my life, and have spent the past six years in Santa Cruz. Overall I like to think I'm pretty outgoing & social guy. My interests include health, fitness (weightlifting, cycling, yoga, boxing), music (I play violin and have recently been teaching myself piano), meditation/buddhist thought, and philosophy. I love engaging conversations about just about anything. I would love to live with at least one other guy, but have absolutely no problems living with women or other gender identities. As a roommate I try my best to be as conscientious as possible about my impact on others and respect their wishes. As much as I love to be friends with the people I live with, it's also not a problem if my roommates would prefer to be "just roommates". My ideal situation would be a 2 or bedroom apartment with one other person, but I'm also open to a 3 bedroom apartment or a house. I would prefer not to live with more than 2 other people. I would prefer having my own bedroom and bathroom, but this isn't a dealbreaker. Please reach out if you are in need of someone to fill a room, or would like to find an apartment with me!

Finished undergrad at UCSD at the start of 2017. Like to cook and play video games. Not a huge partier but I love hosting board game nights. I don't have a car and want to be close enough that I can use public transit if possible, or to have a roommate who has a car to carpool with. I'm vegetarian but can cook for myself, but if you're big into cooking lots of meat I would struggle with that; I don't like the smell. I'm bisexual and identify as queer but don't really have plans to bring anyone home at this point.

I’m currently living in Boston and I’m hoping to move in early September. I’m not entirely sure where I want to live but since I’ll have a car I’m pretty open to most places. I’m pretty into cooking/baking, I’m trying to get better at fitness, and I’m a big fan of D&D (I’d definitely like to try to get a group going). Additionally, I’ll definitely be watching The Bachelor/Bachelorette and RuPaul (great ways to de-stress). While I’m not opposed to parties, I much prefer drinking while paying Catan or Mario Party or something like that and then impulsively going out dancing or hanging out at the beach at night. I’m not sure what other information is helpful but if you’ve got questions or think we might make a good match then shoot me a text or email.

If anyone is looking for a last minute roommate, I would be open to sharing a 2 bed (ideally 2 bath) with someone. No preference to gender/sexuality. I will have a car so I'm very open to location, I like San Jose a lot. I like to exercise both indoors and outdoors so promixity to a park and a building with a gym would be ideal but not necessary. I really like my home to be a place to get away from hectic life so I prefer it to be clean and quiet with minimal partying. I cook a lot in the house and have no major restrictions in that regard. I'm open to what ever living dynamic works best, whether you want to share in things or just keep to ourselves. I have a smallish dog, she's an 8 year old Aussiedoodle. She's really sweet and incredibily well behaved. I'm ok with another pet in the house but I'm allergic to cats. I'll be coming from NYC towards the end of Aug so I'm looking for a Sept 1st move in but there's a bit of flexibility. I have some furniture that I'll be bringing with me as well. Ideally l'd like shared rent to be around $1200-1500. Send me an email or text if you think it would be a good fit and we can talk!

My name is Arthur, and I am originally from Liberia but have lived in New York for the past 6/7 years. I defered my admissions till January because I will be finishing up at Dartmouth in the coming weeks, and do not feel like it would be wise to make a cross country move in less than a week. I will be moving from NYC and am very unfamiliar with the West Coast. I can be reserved at times but am always open to deep conversations. I generally enjoy listening to music, drawing, writing, playing video games, and listening to podcasts or audiobooks. As of yet I don't have care because I have not really needed 1 in NY, so I would prefer somewhere close to campus. The easiest way to reach me is via text, so feel free to do so if you're interested in rooming together.
