In addition to searching for compatible housemates on this site, how else can Let's Share Housing assist you in finding a great match?

Meet and Mingle!

Each month we offer opportunities to meet potential housemates face to face in a format that will allow you to learn first hand who you might be interested in considering as a future housemate. You will find out what each person is looking for, see if their lifestyle preferences are compatible with yours and then attend and optional no host Happy Hour to get to know those you think might be the right fit for you.
