I did, but with friends from college (vs. colleagues)


I lived with my college roommate basically from the time I got a post-grad job to the time I bought a condo for myself (7 years). It saved me a lot of money, I had someone to take help take care of my apartment, and it was fun to room with my best friend during my 20s! No regrets at all


More common in HCOL cities. Most of the people I started with live w/ roommates (NYC, TC: $100K).


Don’t live with co-works!!!


I lived with roommates right up until I moved in with my fiancé (about 7 years after college). Living with your best friends right after college is a very normal thing to do and had created some of my favorite memories.


I did because I was rarely home

Not a colleague but I lived with a friend from college (DC)

Do parents count?

I lived with random people from Craigslist at first then when I made friends in the new city I was living in I moved in with them. Roommates substantially help cost of living especially in todays market it’s almost impossible to live on your own right out of college. Dont waste money to have your own place at first, it is a nice to have but your bank account will thank you later if you start off with roommates

Everyone I know had roommates until they moved in with a SO. I actually only know one person who lived alone for a few years. This includes casual acquaintances, friends of friends, or siblings of friends as far as I can rack my brain.

I lived with co-workers after undergrad because I was in cities that I knew no one else. We were all in the same program, so it was like built in friends

Lived with friends from college for 4 years before moving in with SO.
