About this app

As the UK’s leading flatsharing service, we’ve helped over 11,000,000 people to find their perfect flatmate or flatshare. With our apps, you can do it all while on-the-go.

Suitable for Everyone

Whether you’re starting university, relocating to the UK, tired of living alone, weighing up what to do with an empty room, or, quite simply, searching for another flatmate or flatshare, we’re the service for you.

Unrivalled Choice

With thousands of flatsharing opportunities to choose from in London, Manchester, Birmingham, Leeds, Edinburgh, Glasgow, and right across the UK, you’ll be able to find your perfect flatmate or flatshare.

The app worked perfectly until the most recent update - now none of my messages are showing up in my inbox . It'll show I contacted them when I go on my saved but the messages do not appear in my app inbox. I have to log into spareroom on a browser to see them. Incredibly frustrating.

No deep linking, or it's just not working properly. No synchronisation between the website and the app, if you message someone from the website it never ever appears in the app.

Hi Emese, thanks for your review. Both the app and your account on the website should sync, if you can't see your message within the app this may indicate you're logged into a different account. We'd be happy to look into this for you, please call on 0161 768 1162 or email at customservices@spareroom.co.uk. Best wishes, The SpareRoom Team

Worst place to look for property. Almost never got any replies from landlords, even if you pay for subscription that will not guarantee your messaged will get answered. Also the property prices look higher than average, compared to zoopla or right to move. Used this app for several months. Waste of time!

We're sorry to hear you didn't receive a reply yet, we recommend sending a follow-up message, in the meantime, reach out to all suitable adverts in your area. We also recommend having a Room Wanted advert if you don't already, those with an advert gain more of a response. Best wishes, The SpareRoom Team

What's new

In this update, we've made numerous behind-the-scenes changes in preparation for things that will be released in the coming weeks and months. We've also made many improvements to the posting of Room Wanted ads — making it quicker, easier and more user-friendly.

As always, we'd love to hear your thoughts on these changes and about other things we can do to improve.
