After helping over 7,000,000 people in the UK find their perfect room or roommate, we've come to help in the US. With our apps, you can do it all while on-the-go.

Repeatedly featured by Apple in the categories of Your New Home, Apps for the Weekend, What's Hot, and Popular Apps and Games. Covered by The New York Times, Time magazine, The Wall Street Journal and the Los Angeles Times.


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.


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'.


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.


Experience has taught us that finding a great roomshare 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, someone finds a roommate, housemate or roomshare every 3 minutes on SpareRoom.


Our award-winning 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 using our new feedback option at the bottom of the home screen.

SP I’m fairly new to this app so not very good at navigating I’m looking for something in a particular area but can’t seem to change my zip perhaps this update can help . Thus far I’ve gotten a couple reply’s versus none in other apps so will be keeping it and hoping that this will be the app to help , for now I’ll rate it at 3 until better knowledge on navigating this app ).

Very Useful

I’m not even going to lie.. this app is probably the best app I have used in regards to searching for a roommate. All the other apps are scammy, either by the company or win the sheet amount of fake listings. I would recommend this app to someone looking to rent out a room. They also have “speed-roommate” events also.

Beware If Your Colored

A lot of the people on here are looking for white or Asian people so if your black it will take longer to find something on here.
