Roommate Matching -- How Does It Work?

Choosing your first home outside of the dorms can be a lot to handle! Between finding a place that's close to campus, has cool spots nearby, and fits your budget, you might already be overwhelmed before you even start thinking about roomies!


For some, the roommate choice may be a no brainer, but for others, like those coming in from out of town, picking a roommate can be trickier! But did you know you can leave it up to SAMI? We'll take care of the roommate search for you, so you can focus on finding your perfect apartment! No more stressing about scrolling through Facebook groups or awkwardly trying to ask a roommate from your classes.


All you need to do? Pick the apartment you love that fits in your budget, and we'll work to pair you with up to three like-minded individuals, and you end up with a ready made squad!


So how does it work? 

Head to our site and search for apartments that fit your vibe like normal. Use our handy filters to set your search to match your preferred number of bedrooms, your budget range, or if you have pets, and start scrolling! You can also just browse all our open apartments if you're not too picky!




Once you find a few that speak to you, go ahead and schedule a viewing. Whether you want to check it out virtually or in-person, our friendly agents will show you around and answer any questions you may have. If the unit you love needs additional roomies, we'll add it to our list of apartments that need help filling and match you with new pals! Don't worry -- we'll send you their contact info when we find a good match (or 3!) so you can get to know them!


And if you prefer to check out apartments that are already partially full, no problem! Just select the "Roommate Match" icon on our search filters and scroll through our listings of open spots only. We'll work with you to find the perfect fit when you schedule your showing!




And that's it! When you're busy with classes and extracurriculars, you can count on SAMI to make your apartment hunt a breeze. Check us out for all your college housing needs!
