Why use SpareRoom?
Fill a room or find a roommate quickly and easily
It only takes a few clicks to post an ad or search for an apartment share – or, if you're on the move, a few taps using our apps or mobile site.
It's all about you
There's no such thing as the perfect apartment share - we're all individuals and have different needs. That's why we let you search based on what's important to you, to make sure you find your perfect match.
Stay safe while you search
We've got a team of real people checking every ad on SpareRoom, so you can be sure your safety is our top priority. We've been around since 2004 (that's ancient for a tech company – we're older than Twitter and Instagram) so we've seen every trick in the book and know how to keep you safe.
Meet potential roommates face to face
You can arrange viewings with people one by one via the site. Or, if you're in Manhattan or Brooklyn, you can come to one of our weekly Speed Roommating events. You'll get to meet lots of new people in one go (in a fraction of the time it would take to go to their apartments, or invite them to yours).
Get help if you get stuck
We can give you plenty of tips and advice about what to do. Our Customer Services team are on the end of the phone every day to answer your questions. We'll usually answer your call within three rings, or, if you prefer email, we'll reply within 24 hours.
