Co-living spaces like studio apartments are getting more and more popular in Singapore. There was a time when there were barely 10% Singaporean tenant occupancy rate but today there is around 1/3rd of the population living in co-living spaces.

What has made it so attractive to live in?

To begin with, let us understand what a co-living space means. It refers to a space where residents can live together under one roof and mingle. They generally include shared apartments and private rooms, with communal spaces that residents use for mingling with each other.

Furthermore, when compared to traditional rentals, they are fully-furnished and inclusive of all utilities. This allows tenants to move in quickly without much of hassles. A good example of this is Coliwoo @ Keppel which offers private rooms and communal spaces in the form of a lounge, terrace, and gymnasium.

Each room unit in a co-living space includes an en-suite bathroom, kitchenette, refrigerator, and washer-dryer. 

What also makes co-living space so preferable is that they are generally located in centrally located areas. This allows tenants to live close to their workplace. For instance, behind the co-living block at Coliwoo @ Keppel is a new office block. This enables employees to live just a stone’s throw away. 


Before you pick your co living space Singapore, - you need to

  • Inspect the amenities available. What is available in the co-living space Singapore and also, in the neighborhood. This will help you get familiar with cooking and laundry facilities, as well as with shopping and dining options.
  • Get familiar with the co-living space rules and norms. This will let you know what are the hours when you can do the laundry and when you need to avoid making loud noises; what hygiene and cleaning norms needs to be followed; and so on.
  • Get to know who your housemates will be in the co-living space. This will help you get acquainted with their tastes and preferences, nature of work, and so on. This way, you will know who you can interact with the most for chats or go out on weekends or have a get-together, and such likes. The better you do it, the more friends you can make and live normally and happily.
  • Be familiar with the spaces in the co-living space that will offer you privacy. This will allow you to be by yourself and get the time you need to relax or sought things out. For those who like to socialize outside their privacy space, there are communal areas available. They can be used for socializing or hosting community events.
  • Be through with the terms of the contract. Read it carefully through every term and condition. Understand clearly the payment term including when you need to pay the rent; how to pay the rent; what is the notice period (it generally will be 30 days); and how to terminate the contract and who should be informed on the same.
