Looking for a room

find housemates and housemates to house share

Register for free and add a listing as a Housemate if you are either looking for a room to rent in a shared house or are looking for other housemates to buddy up with.

Live-in landlords/owners and lead tenants search this section to find new housemates or lodgers. Housemates use it to search for like-minded people interested in house sharing in their area.

Register, selecting the option to 'Find a room to rent' to appear in the section.

It takes just 4-5 minutes to register for free online. We also offer a telephone registration service if you don't feel able to do this yourself, which costs £10.

"I signed up with Cohabitas in January and found it very straightforward to use. It was recommended to me, and I would definitely recommend it to others in similar circumstances to mine. I particularly appreciated the inclusive aspect, as the mention of maximum age on other sites can be very discouraging."

“I’m very happy that Cohabitas exists. It gives me hope that I will be able to find a flatshare in spite of my age, which has made it more difficult to find a place to live.”

"I have found a place through Cohabitas, so how do I pause my Ad? They are really nice people so am looking forward to it."


Tip: Housemate is the term we use interchangeably on Cohabitas for flatmate (cities), roommate (US), roomies (US) and room buddies (US), home mate (rarely used but nice), and last but not least lodgers (UK), because we think it best suits our over 40 and over 50 community of users. Roommate, roomies  etc is widely used in the US does not mean people share a room, only a home. Housemates and flatmates also share a home but those terms are most widely used.
