Finding a roommate just got easy!

Off-campus housing just got easy! More than a slogan, it's the core principle that defines perch'n. We work hard to round up as many listings as we can, so you can find that perfect place near your campus.

Now we've upgraded our roommate feature to complement our powerful housing search engine. If you've rented a house or apartment but need to fill a spot, the roommate search will match you with someone looking for housing. The search can be tailored to find certain attributes, such as gender and year at college. Your post also allows you to explain more about yourself and the roommate you'd like to find. It works similarly for individuals who want to find one or more roommates before beginning a search together.

And as with our housing search, finding a roommate is free of charge!
