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.

Worked great to find a roommate

Finally an app that works!! I paid for a different roommate app where you have to pay to see messages and when I did, every single message was spam. It was awful. I didn’t have to pay on here to message people (though you do have to wait til their ad has been up for 7 days) but I decided it might be worth it to pay $10 to get that extra exposure and message potential people immediately. Luckily, it worked out well for me cause I found someone I liked quickly and she just moved in! Very happy overall.

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
