Roost

Homes run by housemates

We’ll help you find and manage a home that you can live in for as long as you want.

I've moved 3 times in 5 years, and now I can get this place just how I like it.

how it works

how it works

Roosts are housing co-operatives for the 21st century. The security and control are built in at a fundamental level because we aren’t your landlord: you are your landlord, and we help with the things you want us to help with.

here’s some we made earlier

The Marples, Sheffield city centre

Our first project is the largest UK housing co-operative in 10 years, split into 5 independent flats. It’s a community of 48 people in total.

about us

about us

We came together because we were fed up with bad landlords. We wanted something better, and we knew we could do it through housing co-operatives.


So we set up Roost to make it easy to rent like a homeowner.
