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.

What's New

Version 5.18

In this update, some of you will see we’ve introduced our new ad cards to the search results. It’s part of an effort to make finding your next room or roommate quick, easy and convenient. You’ll all get to see them in coming weeks.

You’ll also see further improvements have been made to our map search. Having added a new set of map pins in the last update — including ones that display rent amounts — we’ve now improved support for ads with multiple rooms and ones with four digit rents. There’s more to come, too!

We’d love to hear your thoughts on these changes and on other things we can do to improve. You can get in touch with our award-winning customer services team using our new feedback option at the bottom of the home screen.

The website is better


The website was less confusing. If you’re trying to just scroll through apartments then Roomi or roomster might be better — or for finding the actual person to live with I liked Circle for Roommates. This tried to do a lot and on an app that was tough. Website was better!

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.

Perfect for room rental


You have plenty of selection and a great field to work with. Just be wary that like everything else, not free. It reminds me of a dating site
