Why use SpareRoom?
Fill a room or find a flatmate quickly and easily
It only takes a few clicks to place an ad or search for a flatshare – or, if you're out and about, a few taps using our apps or mobile site.
Get the biggest choice of people to share with
We get two million visitors every month. That's 379 (and a half) Royal Albert Halls full of potential flatmates waiting to meet you. More people means more choice – and more chance of finding flatmates you really click with.
Stay safe while you search
We've got a team of real people checking every ad on SpareRoom, so you can be sure your safety is our top priority. We've been around since 2004 (that's ancient for a tech company – we're older than Twitter and Instagram) so we've seen every trick in the book and know how to keep you safe.
Meet potential flatmates face to face
You can arrange viewings with people one by one via the site. Or, if you're in London or Manchester, you can come to one of our Speed Flatmating events. You'll get to meet lots of new people in one go (in a fraction of the time it would take to go to their houses or invite them to yours).
Get help if you get stuck
We can give you loads of tips and advice about what to do – especially if you haven't shared before, you're new to London or the UK, or English is your second language. We'll usually answer your call within three rings, or, if you prefer email, we'll reply within 24 hours.
