Get your apartment shares sorted in one night

At Spareroom we’re experts in creating happy apartment shares, and our SpeedRoommating events are one of the most popular and successful ways we do it. You’ll meet lots of potential new roommates in just a couple of hours, giving you the best chance of finding the right ones without the hassle (and awkwardness) of attending viewings first. We hold regular SpeedRoommating events in Manhattan and Brooklyn, and entry is totally FREE.

Why SpeedRoommating?

How it works

  1. Book your place

    Check out the events page to see what’s coming up, and reserve your spot.
  2. Get your name badge

    Fill out the badge you're given on arrival – it'll be a different color depending on whether you have a room or need one. Be clear about your budget and desired area on the badge, so people know what you're looking for.
  3. Grab a drink

    …it's one way to break the ice! Most of our events have a happy hour (and cocktails), so buy your favorite and get mingling.
