Toronto - Wednesday December 4, 2019, 7.30pm at the Hive Bar Toronto
We are pleased to announce Decembers Speed Roomies event!
This regular roommate meeting event will help you guys find somewhere to live. For those of you that haven’t heard of what one is, let us explain.
It is essentially an event where people who are looking for a room in a shared place are able to meet other people that have a room free in their respective home. It’s not in a speed dating format, moving from table to table every 2 minutes, but is rather more like a mixer, where you guys can mingle with no restrictions. It cuts out the tiresome process of having to attend dozens of viewings and simplifies it into one easy event.
How does it work:
On arrival you will be given one of two stickers:
Room Seeker: Those that are looking for a room.
Room Haver: Those that have a room free in their home.
The idea then is to go and meet as many people as you can with the other color sticker, to see if you guys hit it off and become roommates.
Both Speed Roomies and ONTA believe in the strength that community brings and social events like this are a great way to connect with your fellow Torontonians while finding someone awesome flatmates to live with!
The Next Event:
We are hosting the next event on Wednesday December 4th, 2019, 7.30pm at Hive Esports Bar. 49 St Clair Ave W, Toronto, ON M4V 1L3, Canada
Accessibility Note: The front doors and venue area are accessible for mobility devices as well as the washrooms. Please note that the washrooms are lacking in rails in the stalls.
The event fee is $10 if you buy the tickets through here. We will have some tickets on the door, but these will be on a first come, first served basis. The fee is to ensure we can keep these events going in future!
How to prepare:
-When at the event, talk to as many people as you can with the opposite color sticker, but also talk to the people that have the same color sticker as you. In doing the latter as well, if you guys get along, you can rent a whole place together.
-Don't be so strict on the areas you want to live. You may meet some great roommates that live away from the area you are wanting, and through compromising, you can potentially live with people you actually want to live with.
- Don’t be worried about being shy. Everyone is in the same boat, and usually comes on their own. They are here to meet people, just like you.
