Female roommate wanted

I am looking for female roommate to share a 2BR/1Bath apartment available to move in on March 24th located in the Commonwealth Terrace Cooperative (CTC).
The full rent is $927. This amount is equally shared between roommates ($ 463.5 per person). Utilities included in this rent fee are heat, water, gas, electricity, and cable. Internet is not included in the rent, and we will need to split the bill. A security deposit is also required.
The lease is a month-to-month tenancy, however I would prefer a roommate who can commit to at least a year lease.
About me: I am a female PhD student in Applied Plant Science, originally from Brazil. I am responsible, easygoing person and friendly. When not working, I enjoy going out with friends and having some friends for a dinner or a Brazilian BBQ.
I would prefer a graduate UMN student, but would be willing to consider non-students too. I'm looking for an easygoing, neat, responsible and respectful female roommate.
No pets allowed.

A bedroom in a 2B1B will be available starting March 2016. Female roommate wanted

I'm a graduate student at the UMN. My current roommate will vacate on March 11th. I'm seeking a new roommate to take her room. It's OK to move in a little bit early.

CTC is located right beside the st. Paul campus, within 5-minute walking distance with school bus and metrotransit bus no. 3 stops.
You can find the floor plan here

The bedroom is the larger one, with the first car parking which is right in the front of the entrance.

The monthly rent is 477 including gas, electricity, garbage, cable.
Parking is $15/m.
Internet is $16/m.
CTC charges a one time application fee of $75 ( I will split this with you).

I'm PhD student from China and plan to live here till 2019. To reduce the hassle, I expect the new roommate with a relatively long-term stay (1 year+).

If you are a female student or professional at the U, you are very welcome to schedule a time to visit.  Please contact me via
