Roommate Matching

Finding a roommate can be one of the most challenging parts of the housing process. However, at Temple, we pride ourselves on offering tools to help you succeed. We understand that as you transition from high school to college, the need to find a compatible roommate is crucial to your decision-making process.

RoomSync is a Facebook app that allows you to choose your roommate according to lifestyle preferences. Approximately 24 hours after you pay your housing deposit, you will have access to RoomSync.

How to access and use RoomSync (after it opens in January 2018):

  1. Pay your Housing Deposit
  2. 24 hours later, an RMS ID is created for you by UHRL. Students who have not paid the housing deposit will not have access to RoomSync.
  3. Use this link to access RoomSync: https://apps.facebook.com/Roomsync
  4. Click “Come On In” button
  5. Enter RMS ID - received from MyHousing portal
  6. Select your lifestyle preferences
  7. Click “Show Roommates”
  8. Select “Pin for Later” under any matches that interest you
  9. Send messages to potential roommates
  10. Send roommate request or accept roommate request
  11. Go to MyHousing and pull in your roommate (or your roommate pulls you into their selection)
