Hi guys

Let’s look at top places people share apartments in Lagos.. a lot of people share apartments due to many factors like rent, high cost of getting hotels or transportation to work daily ..

What is Shared Apartment

Shared housing is a long-term living arrangement between two or more unrelated people who choose to live together to take advantage of the mutual benefits it offers.  The benefits are shared rent, bills like psp bills ,PHCN, etc

Usually shared apartments are split between 2–4 persons

Most people who share apartments are majorly workers , corpers and under graduates (thanks to low hostels available to students who study in this schools) or even travellers . Do you know some people live in ibadan and work in Lagos.

It is cheaper to get a shared apartment as some home owners charge as low 3,000 weekly to stay in their place

Some prefer shared apartment not even because of cost ,some do so based on traffic. Lagos traffics is from hell

Most of did not know our parents well as some of them come home 10 to 11pm and live home the next morning by 4am to 5am, you don’t want to be in a Lagos traffic

We got a lost of request on cotenant from people who need shared apartments and surveys online to write this list
