My name is Uchechi and I am arriving in Beijing on August 18th! I'm looking for a roommate (or two) so that I can save money. At maximum I'm willing to pay ~3000 RMB/ month. I'm really easygoing, fun, and determined to learn way more than just basic Chinese once I get there. I've traveled a lot, though never into Asia, so I'm really want to adventure in my free time. Please email me at uchechi.kalu@gmail.com if you are interested.

Hello everyone,

My name's Michael and I'll be arriving in Guangzhou at the end of July. I'm looking for at least one roommate and my price range is between 2,000-3,500 RMB. Overall I'm easygoing and considerate of other people, and I do my part to keep the commons area clean. I'm interested in exploring places outside of the city as much as possible on my days off.

Please send me a message if you're interested in looking at places.

Hey everyone. - I am arriving in Beijing in July from South Africa and would really love to share an apartment with people from different countries. If anyone is interested please contact me on email. mr.jakes.e@gmail.com. I am very clean and tidy.

Hey everyone - I'll be arriving in Beijing in July, and I am looking for 1 or more people interested in sharing an apartment in the Chaoyang district.  I'm most interested in living on the north side, near the 798 Art District and within range of the Caochangdi neighborhood (art spaces are my pretty much my bread and butter, so I'd like to have easy access to them).  I'm a pretty clean person, I like eating and staying healthy, and I would love to have someone with whom to explore the culture, history, and food (of course!) that Beijing has to offer.  If you're interested in chatting more about compatibility, feel free to message me on here or shoot me an email at simone.dube.levine@gmail.com.

In Putuo, Shanghai

Looking for a financially responsible and easy going male or female roommate.
Here are all the details...
The apt is 4000 per month. Total amount you would have to pay up front is 10,376 rmb. This includes 2 month deposit + 1 months rent + agency fee+ internet etc...
I apartment is modern and both rooms are quite spacious. The dinning room has a large table perfect for having friends over for dinner. The living room has a big comfortable sofa and a large flat screen tv. The apartment has a washing machine, kitchen with microwave, refrigerator (with freezer) and there is aircon/heat.
Overall it's a really good location! Only a 5 min walk to the zhenping road metro station. There are also a lot of shops and a tesco very nearby. There is a lovely park next to the complex which is great for exercise and relaxation. It's really easy to get a taxi from the apt and overall the area is very safe with lots of other expats. If you'd like to set up a time to see the apt you can call me at 131-2231-0669
The apt is in Puxi and the district is Putuo. Address is apt 903 bld 6 no 88 Dongxin rd cross west Guangfu rd.

Hi Everyone,

I'm Kirby and I will be in Beijing in a week!  I am hoping there are some other women looking for roommates.  If so, I can't wait to meet you!

Comment by Tara Barnes on April 18, 2014 at 10:23am

Hello, I will be in Beijing in a week and was wondering if anyone else might be in the area at this time as well and looking for a roommate.  I am 31 and love the outdoors. I enjoy having activity around me but am a quiet person myself.
