Share accommodation is the most popular with students and overseas travellers. There are no contracts to be signed and everyone living in the same place shares the bills. You have the opportunity to meet new people, learn about other cultures and share in all of the duties of keeping up your accommodation. You may have a bedroom to yourself or share your bedroom with one or more people and the living areas, kitchen and bathrooms are shared by all. Most share accommodation comes fully furnished.
You may find yourself having to abide by the rules that your housemates establish before you arrive, however you do have more freedom in this type of accommodation.
