RentHoop is the easiest and most effective tool for finding a roommate, room or sublet.
It’s as easy as.

Match and message for free.
Our app goes beyond the “Tinder” method of swiping left or right.
Each potential roomie has a rich profile with information that will help you gauge whether they’re your perfect roommate.
Fill out a profile that includes lifestyle preferences like Dealbreakers and questions that help you get to know your roommate.
We’ve gone above and beyond to build the roommate app most tailored to your experience, whether you’re looking for a short-term room for rent or urgently looking for a roomie at your college. We even have a filter to help you find other potential renters at your University.
The majority of our users are in Los Angeles, Seattle and New York City. We’ll be expanding soon! We hope you have a great experience. Feel free to reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Ratings and Reviews
I've been really happy with RentHoop . It's a newer app, so you might stumble upon a glitch, but they're always improving it to flow better and look nicer.
My favorite part of this app is that it lets me FILTER. Whether you're looking for a room or have a room to rent, you can narrow down your search. Prefer a roommate the same gender as you? You can specify. If there isn't a filter you see that you would want, you can always request it on the same screen and look for it to be added later.
I also really like how it allows me to favorite people who I would be interested in messaging for more details. I don't have to message them on the spot, instead I can search through and favorite a few, then come back later and message them right there in the app once I've had a cup of coffee.
Lastly, since I sign in with Facebook, it'll show me if I have mutual friend with that person. I saw someone on the app (who I didn't know) that I shared a friend with, and I was able to reach out to my friend and ask her about the person and set up a coffee date. It gave serious credibility to that potential roommate because I trust my friend's judgement.
App is great! I found a roommate!
I found this app through UW for finding roommates off campus and I have to say it did not disappoint! I made a profile, added some extra pictures and a solid description of my habits/expectations and after a month or so of being on there and messaging with a few people I found a roommate who is a great fit for our household! The interface is great, I like that it offers dealbreakers but once I picked mine I couldn’t change them(or couldn’t figure out how) so make sure they’re accurate! The more you fill out on the profile the more likely you’ll have success!
The app crashed after I put in my Bio and when I opened it back up it had forgotten everything I put in and wanted me to restart. The Bio was sort of long so losing it caused me to lose interest in trying again. It seems like a decent idea for an app and the design is nice but some inconsistencies in the design of the explanation screens at the beginning and the way it crashed so easily show the app’s youth and that is still under development. Could be nice but requires further user testing to expand the app’s usefulness (I already noticed that it could be nice to provide an option to find a roommate who is also looking to choose an apartment together) and fix any bugs that would turn potential users away.
