More and more people learn about coliving with each passing day. But what kind of person chooses to live in a coliving space? That question has a simple answer: all kinds of people!

Here at Common, we see this huge diversity firsthand. Our members are folks from all walks of life who love Common’s beautiful shared spaces, vibrant neighborhood locations, helpful amenities, and the way we make city living more affordable than ever. Here on our blog, we’ll feature interviews with Common members from all over the country, so you can get to know your current (or future) housemates. Whether you’re an artist, a designer, a chef, or an engineer, you’ll find people in this community who inspire you.
