Roommates

Living with roommates is one part art, one part science - and here on the Common blog, we can help you achieve that alchemy. Check back often for the latest stories on roommate living. Common is all about coliving, so we think you’ll find there’s something for everyone.

After all, being a Common member means getting the best parts of coliving (think lower rents and beautiful spaces) with none of the hassle. And that means ensuring the space is welcoming, warm, and friction-free for everybody. Whether you’re decorating your new home, searching for tasty dinner concepts, drawing up a chore chart, or just looking for fun things to do together, you’ve come to the right place.
