Apartment Searching

Types of coliving: studios, micro-units, coliving, traditional


One fact that most people find surprising about Common: we don’t just offer homes for roommates. Common members can live in one of our many shared homes, or rent a traditional studio, 1, 2 or 3-bedroom apartment. While there are many different types of apartments, here are the ones offered by Common:


The majority of Common’s homes are coliving homes. In a coliving home, members each have their own private bedroom in a fully furnished, well-designed space.

Our coliving homes offer the most amenities, like free laundry, shared supplies, furniture, and are perfect for people looking to build community in the city. Our coliving homes are also designed around a concept called “nested privacy,” in which each member has their own private space, a space that’s private to their suite, and a space in which the whole building can gather.

So whether you’re excited about meeting new friends from day 1, or just having a comfortable place to crash after a busy day, our coliving homes have you covered.


Common also offers studios across many of our locations. A studio is perfect if you’re looking to save money on rent or are starting fresh in a new city. We offer furnished studios at Common at Parco, which feature Murphy beds and movable furniture, but the rest of our studios are unfurnished. 


Our traditional units offer members private 1, 2, and 3-bedroom apartments, with all the convenience of living at Common. We offer private apartments in cities across the country, including Los Angeles, St. Paul, St. Petersburg, and New York City. Thees units typically don’t come furnished, but offer access to Common’s built-in community, events, and people-first property services.
