Anybody else moving to Shanghai in Late July/Early August?  Still waiting for Visa Application, but tentatively starting then, looking for EF roommates.

Moving to Shenzhen with the June 21 intake - Ideally I would love to have 1-2 roommates to cut down costs. I don't know where I'll be placed yet, but let me know if you're interested!

Hello! I'm arriving in Beijing in January, and I'm interested in potentially having a roommate. If you're interested, let me know so we can discuss. :)

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 :)

Hey guys, I have to go home in July 28th 2016 and need a replacement for my room as I am leaving before my year contract.  If anyone needs a room, located close to People Square - Shanghai, please add me on wechat: Tangel_AN

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!
