Hello! I'll be arriving in Beijing in December and would love to have a roommate! If anyone is interested, let me know so we can chat!

Hi everyone!  I will be arriving in Beijing some time in October. I am looking for a roommate/ roommates to live with while I'm living in Beijing. As it is my first time abroad I feel like it will be nice to have someone living with me that is experiencing the same thing. Please let me know if you are interested. Then  we could start browsing for places/ get to know each other before I arrive. 

Thank you :)

The room is literally 1 minute walk from Xinzha Road station, line 1, very convenient to get to most places within the 10 - 15 minutes by the metro. It's a shared apartment with international people (not with EF) so you can mingle with different people!

Hi everyone, especially those arriving in April/May 2016! I have a room becoming available in my beautiful apartment, on the 3rd of May. We are right next to Zhongtan Road Underground Station on Lines 3 & 4, you will not find an apartment any closer to a station! I'm from England, and I work in the online centre (30 minute commute on one train, including the walk) and my house mate is from America, and she works with kids and teens. We are fun-loving pair, and super easy to get along with! Our third house mate is leaving us, and we need to fill her room. The rent is 3300 a month. Please add me on we chat for more info, and pics: MissSidraUK
