Phil B, Manchester

"Advertising a room to rent on Cohabitas enabled us to find great lodgers, that fit our profile. Instead of waiting for lodgers to find us, we used the search filters to locate suitable profiles and proactively contacted them. This approach is very effective if you are prepared to invest some time in your search."

Kerrie S, Surrey

Find Your Best House Share Match

Tip: The terms roomshare, room rental and shared rooms are widely used in the US. However, this does not mean people are looking to share a room; it also means they are looking for a room in a shared house and that is known as a house share or flat share in UK.

Tip: Room to rent is the term we use interchangeably on Cohabitas for rooms in flatshares or house shares, as well as rooms to rent (plural).

If you have a spare room and are thinking of renting it out, you can add a free room for rent listing yourself.

Its easy to add listing, but if you need more help then we offer a telephone registration service and you can tell us about the room for rent details over the phone. We'll do the rest.
