Co-living is a form of shared housing where you rent a private bedroom in an apartment or building and share common amenities like kitchens, living rooms and bathrooms. By renting just a bedroom and sharing the common amenities, you pay less for your housing then you would if you were to rent a traditional studio or one-bedroom unit. Plus, with the addition of furniture, you avoid the costs of buying your own or moving your own. You basically bring your clothes, your own linens and towels and your personal belongings and we take care of the rest.
We have two formats of co-living properties for you to choose from, traditional apartment setups and our Quarters concept. Both formats have multiple locations for you to choose from.
• Traditional apartment formats where you rent a bedroom in an apartment and share common areas with a smaller group of people. This format has a 30 to 90-day minimum stay requirement,depending on property and time of year, and has more of a roommate type of feel. You could stay for a year or longer, comfortably in this an apartment co-live. In this format we have bedrooms with private baths and bedrooms with shared baths for you to choose from.
• Our Quarters concept where you rent a bedroom in a building format and share common areas with a larger group of people. Kitchens and common areas are limited in this format, which makes Quarters most suitable for shorter monthly stays between 30-60 days. In this format you can be a bit more independent from other people living in the building, if you prefer.
We can’t guarantee who your roommates will be but we do make an effort to pair people with similar educational backgrounds and professions in our apartment formats. If you have a preference feel free to share it in the application process and we’ll try to accommodate.
When you book a co-living or a full apartment your payment covers all of your normal housing costs like utilities, wireless internet and cleaning (bi-weekly or upon departure, depending on the place you’ve booked). Your payment also covers a damage deposit fee instead of requiring a security deposit, so you don’t have to tie up large sums of money for long periods of time. Check out the unit descriptions and amenities for more specifics on what each unit comes with.
Once you book a co-living place, we’ll send you the house rules, but generally speaking you can expect some boundaries around noise, clean-up, sharing the common areas and just being respectful to other people living in the same place as you.
Sometimes the calendar and the cleaning schedules allow us to accommodate early check-ins and late check-outs. Please check with us a few days before your arrival to confirm. Worst case scenario we can help arrange for you to store your bags if we can’t accommodate your request.
Yes, absolutely. Just let a member of the Thatch team know when you want your cleanings scheduled and we’ll add them to the calendar and put them on your statement. Each type of place has different cleaning frequencies. You’ll find that information in the details of your rental.
We have very limited parking and only at certain properties. You can filter your search by Parking spaces only to find availability at the property you are staying at. We strongly recommend that you not bring a car unless absolutely necessary. Most of our places are centrally located and near public transit hubs and cars can actually be a slower, more expensive form of travel around the City.
