Over recent years, coliving has become an increasingly popular choice for people – and especially young people – in major cities worldwide. But what exactly is it?
Let’s start with the basics. In the broadest sense, coliving is a modern form of community living in which tenants rent a private master or common room in a fully furnished apartment. Within the apartment, tenants share common spaces like kitchens, balconies, and living rooms that encourage community and belonging. Tenants also enjoy a set package of amenities, which generally includes services like routine cleaning, wifi, house maintenance, etc.
Essentially, coliving allows tenants to enjoy the best parts of communal living while eliminating the worst parts. Say hello to movie nights and dinner parties, and say goodbye to fighting over who’s turn it is to clean the bathroom.
