Is coliving safe ?

Co-living is, perhaps, safer than living alone in a big city. Unlike living alone in an unfamiliar city, in a co-living situation, there is a community there that checks in to ensure you are ok, to ensure you have what you need and to support you so you are not on your own own. The community is built-in support.

Can I bring my own furniture ?

All our houses & room are already fully furnished (very often with designer's furnitures) and do not require or permit you to bring in your own furniture to replace the furniture that is provided.


Should you require minimal upgrades like closet drawers, desks, etc. it is usually no problem.
