After helping over 13,000,000 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, on average, every 3 minutes someone finds a roommate through 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 by email ( or phone (1 877 834 2909).

What’s New

Version 5.52.9

In this update, we’ve made significant improvements to the saved ads experience. You can now filter them by status (saved, contacted, shown interest, hidden), sort them (newest, last updated, highest rent/budget, lowest rent/budget), and view them on a map.

We’ve also added some extra functionality to messaging. If you’ve got multiple active ads, you’ll now be able to filter your conversations to see just ones about a specific ad or just those from users with room wanted ads you’ve contacted.

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.

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.

On my 4th housemate

SpareRoom thank you for helping me turn my empty room into a money maker. As you know living in LA is very expensive so getting a housemate makes my life easier. Everyone that moved in fit me perfectly and paid rent and utilities on time. I recommend this app, it will help you. Some advice for people who have a spare room, furnish it!!!! You’ll have a better chance of getting a roomie, if you make it easier for them. You’ll always make money from it😉
