People interested in a finding a room in a house share search in this section.

Phil B, Manchester

"Advertising a room to rent on Cohabitas enabled us to find great tenants, that fit our profile. Instead of waiting for tenants 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." 

Julie E, London

"Please pause my room listing. Have had a very good response to my room advert within the first couple of weeks, such a good website. Thanks!"

Kerrie S, Surrey

"I was delighted to find the Cohabitas website... it met my needs perfectly and I found a suitable housemate very quickly. I will definitely come back to Cohabitas when I have a vacant room in the future."


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).

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 in UK.

To find a roomshare in London use this section and search for flat share london.

Tip: You might also consider a home share with an elderly  home owner.

You can find rooms to rent though Homeshare UK, an organisation that pairs together younger students with more elderly home owners. In return for a reasonable rent in nice homes, the student offers some social companionship and does some basic chores. This is an International organisation with different branches - so search locally if looking outside UK.
