After helping over 8,000,000 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 5.25

In this update, you’ll see we’ve redesigned a few screens and made accessibility improvements throughout our app.

Our new, reorganised Account screen makes finding the information you need easier and quicker. It’s more intelligent too, providing important information – like the number of active ads or days remaining on your upgrade – in one glance. It also lays the foundations for significant upcoming changes.

We’ve also overhauled the design of our Post Ad screen — explaining why you should post one for either your search for a room or for a flatmate/tenant. Hint: it’s really effective. Plus, we’ve improved the usability of resuming or discarding a draft ad.

Finally, you can now use Google’s Gmail app – as well as Apple’s Mail app – to get in touch with us for support.

We’d love to hear your thoughts about these changes and the 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.

Quality room renters

I've found some really mature, focused, success driven, clean, polite, liberal male roommates with a calm energy from SR! I love that there is a profile that *if* filled out gives me a vibe for compatibility, which saves us both time. I don't like when people try to circumvent the whole process and just call me up, having no profile, like this is the Holiday Inn. It's not. It's my home and I live here safely too. Caio

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.

App UI works, renters are bias....

App works, however, people that are looking to share apartments or homes are extremely bias, racists and place people of certain groups/color in a exclusion list. That’s unfortunate for how far America has traveled away from ignorance only to know hatred still defines this nation.

App doesn’t have many to none listings in smaller cities to towns. I didn’t discover many houses for renting finish basements etc. And this is true for all of these types of apps.

I gave it two stars for effort.
