Room Surf - College Roommate Finder


Work category


As a unique social networking resource for college students, Roomsurf has helped more than 175,000 students find compatible roommates since its launch. Utilizing Facebook as a platform, the service links same-sex students based on their responses to a series of questions. Users of Roomsurf include high school seniors, college students, and graduate students attending more than 1,000 colleges and universities around the country.

Building upon the idea that compatibility with roommates enhances a student’s academic experience, Roomsurf provides a valuable resource for students, parents, and academic institutions. By matching students through the use of a proprietary algorithm, Roomsurf takes the guesswork out of finding a roommate with similar interests and habits. As a platform for communication, the service empowers students to make their own choice rather than leaving the selection of a roommate to chance.
