As the UK’s leading roomsharing service, we’ve helped over 10,000,000 people to find their perfect roommate or roomshare. 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. Rated by The Sunday Times as one of the top apps on the App Store.


Whether you’re starting university, 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.


With thousands of roomsharing opportunities to choose from across the UK and USA, you’ll be able to find your perfect roommate or roomshare.


Experience has taught us that flat sharing 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 or roomshare every 3 minutes.


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 5.39

In this update, we've made a number of visual tweaks to enhance the usability of our app. Most notably, you'll see a redesigned version of the Post Ad screen that also adds the option of posting ones for whole properties.

As always, we'd love to hear your thoughts on the things we can do to improve our app. You can send us your suggestions using the feedback option at the bottom of the Home Screen.

Genuine house listings

A friend of mine suggested this, and I used it. Highly recommend it. Genuine house listings. I didn’t find any scam or spam. Found a good place, a very nice house mate as well.

People are not interested

This app seems to have a nice functional interface, but after using it for almost a week and sending out over 44 text messages to people who are in the same price range, looks like no one even responds to you. Basically only 2 people responded out of 44 people. And those two said, they account is old and excused themselves for not taking their account down. It’s a bit expensive for the outcome. For now I do not even feel like anyone is even interested, seems like all accounts are fake!? Should this app be helpful, I’ll write a better review

What happened

I was so delighted to find such a good app for searching for housing and/or flat mates. Initially the app was free to use but that all changed with the upgrade. Now one must pay be it 7 day, 2 weeks, a month.....just to PM anyone on the site. It’s not useful nor productive by any means. I don’t see the reason why the developers set it this way. Does anyone know why?

Developer Response ,

Hi Ali, thanks for your feedback.

We offer a free and paid service on SpareRoom, the paid service has always been available to purchase.

You are able to contact adverts for free on SpareRoom, you can contact Free to Contact adverts straight away and you can also contact Early Bird adverts after they've been on the site for 7 days as they too will become Free to Contact.

We do need to offer a premium service in order to keep our site running and help people find homes. We make this service optional and the majority of our users use our free service.

Best wishes,
The SpareRoom Team
