As you prepare for your first semester at MSU, we know you’ll be thinking about your class schedule, what books to buy, and how to get around MSU’s large campus. With a lot to consider, we want to help you make the transition to MSU as comfortable as possible by offering the opportunity to find your roommate and meet other residents through the RoomSync app on your iPhone, Android, or computer.
RoomSync is an app that gives you the chance to connect with potential roommates before making a final selection. To use this app to find your MSU roommate, follow these steps:
- Head over to the RoomSync website and connect with your Facebook or Google sign-in information. Now you’ll be connected to the MSU database where you can meet other students.
- Next, you’ll be asked to enter your basic information and set up your profile. The app asks you questions about your lifestyle, the lifestyle you’d prefer in a roommate, your majors, and your social media accounts. You can enter as little or as much information as you like, but the more information you enter the more likely you’ll find a compatible match. Make sure to use your MSU email address.
- Once your profile is set up, it’s time to get started! By selecting “Find” from the menu, you can see profiles of other MSU students looking for roommates. You can swipe or click on the right of profiles you like, and swipe or click left on profiles you don’t think would be a good match.
- After you’ve gotten a few matches, you can chat with other students through the app. Use this communication tool to get to know your potential roommates, so you feel confident in who would be the best fit for you.
After you’ve found a roommate, visit your My Housing account, set up a roommate code and and get your new friend’s roommate code in order to select them as a roommate during sign-up.
You can match and unmatch with others as many times as you would like while the network is active. We hope you enjoy using the RoomSync app to meet your roommate and other future Spartans. We look forward to seeing you in the fall!
