Hello all! I'll be arriving in Beijing May 18, 2016, but I'll be working in Tianjin and am looking for a roommate. I'm finding a lot of stuff on Beijing and Shanghai, so if anyone knows of some good resources for TJ, please let me know. :)

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

Hi everyone- I'm Jessica from Connecticut, USA. I'm heading to GZ in January and will be teaching adults. I would love to find a roommate(s) to share an apartment with when we arrive. Feel free to send me a message if you're interested and want to chat more. Safe travels everyone!

@ Mark. It may be different for others, but it seems to me like it all depends on the leasing contract. Myself and 2 others just moved into a place in GZ that was already established and we took over the lease that expired at the same time the others were leaving. If you leave after the year with EF, you shouldn't have to find someone to take over.

I was wondering if someone might be able to enlighten me. It seems that when people are moving out of their places of residence to head home, they almost have to find a replacement first. Is there truth to this? Or am I just assuming this?

Hey Ya'll!
