Looking for a Roommate?
When you apply for an apartment with DTS Campus Housing, you are applying to rent an apartment by yourself or with the family members or spouse indicated on your application. However, residents applying for Washington Apartments have the option to share an apartment with a roommate. DTS Campus Housing does not place roommates together to share apartments, but you may match with a roommate by following the process below.
If you haven’t already, please first Apply for Campus Housing. If you are not yet qualified for Campus Housing, please hold off on finding roommates and applying until you have been accepted.
Download the RoomSync app (or use from your browser) and create your own unique profile. RoomSync allows you to note your living preferences, such as your ideal household temperatures, how messy or clean you are, whether or not you’re a night owl or early riser, and so much more. Make sure to set your filters for what you’re looking for in a roommate. Once you finish setting up your profile you will be able to swipe left and right to connect with other students who are also on the roommate hunt!
We advise all of our incoming residents to take the time to get to know their future roommate before signing on the dotted line. Once you sign a lease together, you are entering into a binding legal agreement, so make sure that you are all on the same page! Everyone must agree to the roommate arrangement and lease terms.
Once you have identified the roommate(s) you would like to live with, please formally “Match” with your new roommate(s) in RoomSync. This will notify Campus Housing of your match.
Please note that matching with a roommate does not guarantee an apartment offer. Offers are still subject to continuing qualifications, apartment availability, and your current spot on the waitlist, among other factors. However, since you cannot receive an offer until any roommates you require are identified, please prioritize matching with someone so that you have the best chance at getting an apartment offer.
We regularly monitor RoomSync to ensure that the platform is safe for our applicants to use. However, if you notice a suspicious character on RoomSync or experience any sort of inappropriate behavior, please report the person on the platform and reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
