Shared housing is nothing new but the number of young people living with roommates has doubled since 1980, and some entrepreneurs see an opportunity.

Just like the old rooming houses years ago except you shared the kitchen but cooked your own food or had a hotplate and frig in your room. I lived in a few of them....1950's and 60's.

I have lived with females and males, on a purely plutonic basis, and some times it works, others, it doesn't.

This reminds me of communal living during the 60's and 70's. My husband, first child, and oldest son lived with my brother, friends of his, and then with another couple for a few years. There can be some personality conflicts and challenges, but for the most part, it was good economically, and it was fun. This s a good, practical idea, I think.
