ABOUT & HOW IT WORKS

Roomsurf for College and University Housing Departments

Roomsurf is the social network that helps students identify and connect with compatible roommates. We provide the platform that fosters communications necessary for students to form satisfying roommate relationships that can last. Studies indicate that online roommate search programs contribute to student retention and satisfaction while supporting the academic success of students by providing a means to obtain a more satisfactory relationship with their roommates.

Roomsurf began as an independent service in 2010 and has helped over 550,000 students connect across the United States and Canada. Chances are your students have been finding roommates on Roomsurf for the last few years! Our service has received national recognition from the Wall Street Journal, Inc. Magazine, the New York Times, FOX News and others.

Our system can integrate with college housing departments to provide a social, secure and customized roommate search program for your students. Our most recent integration partners include the University of Arizona, the University of Central Florida, and Viterbo University.
