Both of mine moved into their own rooms around 10 weeks. It's much easier with night feeds but they are also so noisy that in between those feeds I start needing to be able to sleep.

I had DD in a bassinet in our room for the first month then when DH went back to work DD and I moved into the spare room together with her in the bassinet. At 13 weeks we moved the cot into the spare room and she moved from bassinet to cot. She's now 6 months and we've moved her into her own room (by necessity not choice house guest needed spare room!) and we've put a single bed in her room to help the transition.
Personally with night feeds it is soooooooo much easier when they're in the same room. They wake you up gently and you feed put back in bed. When I've not slept in her room I've been woken by the monitor which is like being woken up by an alarm and then going to another room and feeding then back to bed is a pain in the rear to me so I find it much better in the same room. If I had my time again is probably buy a co-sleeper cot that attaches to the bed or a bassinet on wheels (we had a Moses basket on a stand as it was cheapest option).

Both mine including my 6 week premmie were in their own rooms from day we got home from hospital. My premmie slept with her door closed to stop ds getting to her before me.. I parented a lot differently to now days and wanted my kids to have good sleeping patterns from birth... My kids are 18 and 20 now.

We had DS in the same room as us for one night, then moved him into his own room. He was the noisiest sleeper!! We weren't getting any sleep with all his little grunts and snuffles. We just had a good baby monitor set up. He's always been happy to sleep in his own room.

DS was in his own room from birth - we were comfortable with that and he slept like a dream.
DD and I bed shared for 6 weeks until we had her over sensitive mouth issues sorted then she went into her room.

Both times I set up a camp bed in my bubs room or slept on lounge next to her, that way DH wasn't disturbed and they never had to move out of our room.
Both refused to sleep in a cot as newborns they preferred to be upright and snug in a swing or rocker sleeper.
As pp said when you're attending to them heaps at night it's 1000x worse when you have to walk to another room.

In our room for the 1st year X 6 kids.
We have really strong feelings on this being the safest way.

My bub was in a bassinet in our room, then we moved him to a cot, also in our room. He's 14 months, and still in our room. We will move him at some point soon. He hasn't fed overnight since he was a little bub, but the quick resettles are so much easier when he's close by.

My first was in a bassinet in my room then a cot in our room when she outgrew the bassinet. Forget when I moved her to her own room. Definitely after 6months.
