About this app

After helping over 13,000,000 people in the UK to find their perfect room or roommate, we've now come to help in the US. With our app, you can do it all while on-the-go.

Suitable for Everyone

Whether you’re starting college, relocating within or to the US, tired of living alone, weighing up what to do with an empty room, or, quite simply, searching for another roommate or roomshare, we’re the service for you.

Your Perfect Roomie

We understand that finding your perfect roommate, housemate or roomshare can be a daunting task, but it really doesn't have to be. Using the SpareRoom app, you can filter potential roommates via a range of attributes ensuring you find a perfect new housemate or roomshare! Pick from whether you want your roommate to be a professional, student or other to make sure you're both on the same page when it comes to living together. We'll even allow you to go even more granular by filtering roommates on things like 'are they vegetarian' and 'do they allow pets'.

Unrivalled Choice

With thousands of room-sharing opportunities to choose from right across the US, you’ll be able to find your perfect roommate or roomshare. We're all across the US so you can find a roommate or roomshare from NYC all the way to San Francisco.

Our Philosophy

Experience has taught us that it is as much about the people as it is about the property. To help you find the best of both, we provide unparalleled tools, choice, and support. As a result, on average, every 3 minutes someone finds a roommate through SpareRoom.

Our customer support team are here to help you with your search. If you require support, come across a problem, or want to provide feedback, you can get in touch by email (support@spareroom.com) or phone (1 877 834 2909).

I think the app is nice and it definitely shows more relevant rooms ads than the larger companies. My only complaint and it's not the fault of the app developers is the then landlords. It's clear some are older or have trouble with the language but they make it difficult to communicate and I've lost out on some great properties because of the lack of proper communication. Maybe they can add pre-made responses so that miscommunication stops happening.

Great ! Intuitive interface, quick lookups with useful filter set. A bit of an investment to pay for max coverage. $25 grants your ad in bold for 6 months- 3mos + a 3 month extension in case you still need it. Background check to verify your phone, email and criminal dings. $20 And if you run into a sketchy person during your search, customer support is excellent 👌🏽 Remember, never send money sight unseen to a property lister who won't show the property until you pay some crocked up fee.

This is useless.Nobody posting the ad/rm responds to my messages. Just because you upgrade doesn't mean they can message you back or will. Many ads are exp or no longer avail; they should be removed.What is the point of paying a premium If you get no results. Some of the filters are glitchy. Especially the radius and map filter. Also there is no way to call/ exch numbers, yet most ads are asking to call them? I found a few places I like in my budget but can't contact them.

What's new

In this update, you’ll see that we’ve introduced a new feature to messaging: bulk reply. It’s a way for you to quickly respond to multiple other users if they aren’t suitable for your room/property or if their room/property doesn’t meet your requirements. To keep your inbox manageable and organised, you can also delete those conversations afterwards with just one tap.

Plus, when viewing ads for rooms/properties, you’ll now see a list of ads from the same advertiser at the bottom of the screen.
