Searching for a roommate
When you’re creating your profile, try to be as specific as possible to ensure that we match you with the most compatible members.

That selfie life
A picture says a thousand words, and yours are worth even more! When you’re uploading photos, choose some of yourself normal and others doing activities you love to do. If you have any kids or pets, be sure to include them in the photos as well… give your future roommate a picture who they’re going to be living with… all puns intended. Oh- and another piece of advice, check to make sure there aren’t any“background objects” you wouldn’t want others to see…
Breaking the ice
Don’t be shy, your future roommate is looking forward to talking to you! We get it though, starting a conversation with someone new can be intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be. If you’re at a loss for words, choose one of our "icebreaker" prompts to get the conversation started. It’s an excellent way to get to know somebody in a casual way. The main thing to remember is to just be you, and get answers for some of the essential questions you need to know to see if they’re a good fit.
Still need a few conversation starters? These might help…
- How often do you have people over?
- Do you clean daily, weekly… yearly?
- Are you an early bird or a night owl?
- What’s the parking situation like?
It’s better to get the scoop on all the details before it’s too late… roommate life is much better with it.
Note: Always follow your gut! If you’re feeling uncomfortable in a conversation end it immediately. When you meet with a prospective roommate always let somebody know where you’re going and when you’re going to meet. Better yet, if you can bring somebody you trust with you, that’s even better! It’s always better to be safe than sorry.
