How SpareRoom works

Use us to fill a spare room or find one to live in. Find flatmates you click with – the people who make sharing amazing.

Tell people what you're looking for

Tell people what you're looking for

Create an ad and let potential flatmates find you. Tell them that you've got a room to fill or you want to find one to live in. Talk about the kind of flatshare you're looking for. Are you looking to party every night, or just birthdays and Christmas?

Add photos and a video

Add photos and a video

Bring your ad to life by adding photos and a video. It gives people a real sense of who you are or what your room's like, far more so than anything you'll write in your ad. It's quick and easy - you can do it straight from your mobile, tablet or laptop.

Share your story

Share your story

Tell us about your experience of flatsharing. The unlikely friendship between the it girl and the IT guy. The flatmate who insisted on keeping her plant in the bathroom even though it had been dead for six months. Highlights, lowlights, we want to hear it all.
