What is RoomSync?

Watch the video "RoomSync: Empowering Roommate Choice"

RoomSync is a roommate matching software that allows students to choose their own roommates. RoomSync works in connection with Facebook to match students based on interests, lifestyle preferences, academic major, and mutual friends.

Any student who has requested housing in one of Northwest’s many residence halls is able to use RoomSync.

Why RoomSync?

For fall 2014, 98% of the Northwest students who found their roommate using RoomSync are still together.

Nationally, students who find their roommate using RoomSync average .21 GPA higher!

Facebook Profile

Students are offered a glimpse into the Facebook profile of other students. With these mini-bios, students are able to look at other students’ interests, activities, and the TV shows and movies they have “Liked” to discover which personal interests they have in common. RoomSync will also use this information to make suggestions to make search through profiles easier and more efficient.

Tag or Request

Once a potential roommate match is a found, the student can contact the match via Facebook. If the student is ready to settle, a request can be sent. If the student is not ready, they can tag the match and place them in the “Potential Roommates” section. 

Student Testimonials

“I would absolutely recommend using RoomSync! I really enjoyed feeling like I was a part of the process and got to select my roommate, instead of getting randomly paired with a stranger.” - Mariah Jones

"I would 100% recommend RoomSync to any incoming freshman. RoomSync allows you to meet and talk to many different freshman coming to Northwest and hopefully helps you find your future roommate. If anything, it's a good way to meet people before you actually get on campus...It's all through Facebook, so if you can navigate through Facebook easily, you should have no problem with RoomSync." - Abigail Cook
