RoomSync explained

Blog Header: RoomSync

At CSU we believe in giving our students the power to shape their on-campus living experience. This includes the option to find and request roommates. To make the roommate search as flexible as possible, we offer an easy-to-use roommate selection tool called RoomSync.

What is RoomSync?

RoomSync is a roommate-matching app connected to your Facebook account. It allows you to self-select a roommate based on similar majors, interests, housing options, or lifestyle preferences.

Incoming first-year students who have completed their housing application and have received their hall assignment can access the app from mid-March until the beginning of July.

How does it work?

Once you have been assigned to your hall or Residential Learning Community (RLC), you will receive a RoomSync invite via email. This email will contain a secure passcode you will use to login to RoomSync.

From there, you can get started. Accept your invite and join the matching network, Colorado State University. Fill in your profile with your lifestyle preferences, interests, and housing options. Then start browsing and searching for others based on lifestyle preferences, housing options, interests, or major. Chat with users who interest you and send or accept incoming requests from the users you’d like to live with. Keep in mind that your roommates should have been assigned to the same Residence Hall as you have — otherwise your request may not be honored.

Once you and your roommate have decided to live together, be sure that you both request one another via RoomSync or login to your respective RAMweb accounts and update your housing application to include your roommate’s name and CSU ID.

Do I have to use RoomSync?

RoomSync is recommended but not required. We encourage students to utilize whichever roommate-finding method works best for them. Some students prefer to have the CSU Housing Office match them with a roommate based on their answers to the housing application questionnaire while others may choose to live with someone who they knew prior to college.

When can I use it?

RoomSync is available from mid-March until the beginning of July. You will receive the exact dates via an email containing your invite and passcode.


Our Residence Life staff members know the ins and outs of RoomSync and are happy to guide you through the process. If you’re not sure whether it’s right for you or are having trouble using it, contact them.
