It is a great experience living in a shared house with friends.
Students often share living in their institutions of learning resulting in a unique experience of life. The shared living makes the students learn from one another. It also makes them get a chance to support each other in the daily life activities that may include kitchen duties, cleaning and cost sharing on their daily expenses (Burrowes 2014).
The overall goal of this study is to examine the shared living in students. The study aims at identifying some of the reasons that make students to share the houses in their learning institutions, the advantages and disadvantages of shared living among the students themselves, and how to overcome those problems of living (The Thought and Expression Co. 2012).
This research helps the students wishing to live together in their respective learning institutions to get more informed on the issues concerning shared living. It also enables the management of the institutions to effectively plan for the proper accommodation of their students (Group of Eight Australia 2015. The research also allows the students fraternity to compare individual living and shared living. It can also be used to determine the characteristics and behaviors of the students that share living.
It is difficult to get the students to interrogate yet they are the participants and the subjects under study because of the limited time they have. They are committed because most of the time they are busy attending lectures and during their free time, they perform the household chores.
On several occasions, the students also feel too busy to be interviewed and sometimes deliberately refuse to be interviewed. They can only be met outside the lecture halls or along the streets while going back to their houses or hostels. Some of the participants do not answer all the questions in the questionnaires while others misplace the questionnaires
