The distinguishing features of a shared house include not only sharing space among residents but also social and emotional sharing among residents through interpersonal interactions. Our study hypothesized that shared housing practices that promote close social interactions are indispensable to the formation of emotional attachments between individuals in the community. A central purpose of our study is to assess whether shared housing experiences are linked to individuals’ emotional attachments to the community, which might lead to active participation in community planning. To identify residential satisfaction and community attachment among shared housing residents, we conducted stratified random sampling, surveying 750 young single-person households in Seoul. In general, the residents in shared housing showed higher levels of satisfaction with economic factors, dwelling facilities, locational characteristics, and social factors. The regression results showed that individuals’ preferences for shared housing were strongly associated with community attachment and that shared housing experiences tend to strengthen the formation of community attachment for those who prefer shared housing living situations. We conclude that higher levels of community attachment among shared housing residents have the potential to serve as an important asset for community building and revitalization outcomes. For this reason, offering support for longer periods of tenancy is desirable. Keywords shared housing; community attachment; residential satisfaction; residential dissonance The authors would like to apologize for any inconvenience caused.
