What is RoomSync?
RoomSync is a roommate matching software service on Facebook that works with housing departments to create a seamless college roommate matching solution on Facebook. The innovative process empowers students to choose their own roommates and has been proven to help reduce roommate conflicts.
Roommate Assignments in the Age of Social Media
Currently, more than 80 university housing departments and off-campus properties use RoomSync’s Facebook app. On both the Facebook and mobile app, students browse through potential roommates based on lifestyle preferences, academic majors, mutual friends and more. The app also suggests roommates and even allows users to search for roommates by their interests listed on Facebook. Allowing students to choose their own roommates empowers students, makes them accountable, and has been shown to reduce roommate conflict.
College Roommates and Retention
Research conducted at Michigan State University shows that roommate conflict is one of five major risk factors contributing to college dropout rates. RoomSync aims to reduce this conflict and increase student success. The University of Florida, one of the company’s first clients, collected data after the first year of implementation, and 65 percent of hall staff surveyed reported a decrease in roommate conflicts.The need for a roommate matching software that increases roommate compatibility is greater than ever before, and Facebook is the ideal platform to empower students to select roommates -- more than 96 percent of college students are registered on the world’s most popular social network.
