I'm looking for a roommate for the year while my husband is away teaching in another city. I'm an Assistant Professor at UTSA. I've recently lived with roommates when teaching in short-term positions in Minneapolis and Boston, and my past roommates are happy to provide a reference of my character. I'm clean, responsible, friendly, easy-going, and love this beautiful house! The 1,588 sqft house is very charming and there is a large updated kitchen with a gas stove, etc. I will be around all academic year but away doing research during Summer 2022. The two rooms and bathroom that make up the private suite (i.e. the area of the house that would be of exclusive use for you) are visible in photos 2-4 (beginning after the photo of the house's front door). The private suite is located in the back of the house facing the backyard and has many windows. The suite is also on the opposite end of the house from my office and bedroom, with the kitchen and dining room separating our personal spaces. We would share the rest of the house (kitchen, dining room, living room). While there is the main front door I envision us both using, you would also have a private entrance directly into your suite from the outside through the back fence if that is preferred!

House Sitting

I may need help while I am away

I may need help with my pet(s)

I have a well-behaved miniature schnauzer who lives with me and would be in the house without me on occasion (with covid I'll be split between office and home) but shouldn't need attending to. If I travel out of town I typically take her with me!

I may need help with mail and deliveries

If I go out of town for a few days here and there it would be great if my roommate could bring in the mail :)

I may need help with plants or garden

If I go out of town for a few days here and there it would be great if my roommate could water my 3-4 plants :)
