Roommate Matching Via RoomSync

Are you looking for more control over how you are matched with roommates? Through the RoomSync app, residents are empowered to choose roommates and build a sense of community using lifestyle habits such as cleanliness levels, studying habits, sleep cycles, and more. RoomSync offers an experience that supports a diverse and inclusive matching community through gender-inclusive tools. Furthermore, the app recognizes the importance of living criteria like service and emotional support animals and factors this into the matching process.

Streamlined Housing Contracts

Sharing a living space with a roommate can be a wonderful experience. However, you don’t necessarily want your finances to tangle with a roommate. That’s why our UofSC apartments come with individual housing contracts. Individual housing contracts help reduce financial liabilities between roommates. This means that if one roommate doesn’t submit their payment on time or breaks their housing contract, no other roommate will be held accountable. We’ve also bundled multiple living expenses into one streamlined, monthly payment, which includes water, sewer, trash pickup, Internet, and pest control. Want to know more about our individual housing contracts? Contact our office!
