Student Roommate Matching
Happy Roommates. Fewer Transfers.
The roommate-matching technology built into OneSite Student Living has caused a sensation in the student housing industry. Students who have not chosen roommates in advance simply fill out profiles, much like they would on Facebook. The system then presents good candidates, assigning a percentage that reflects how well they match on issues such as sleeping habits, interests, and living arrangements. It’s solely the responsibility of the students to agree to become roommates – reducing the burden of conflict and turnover for your staff. With roommates selected, they can work together to select a desired unit and assign their bedrooms. Students who are empowered with these choices are far less likely to complain and ask for time-consuming changes. In fact, roommate transfers are reduced by 70%! That means less work for your staff, happier residents, and of course, better occupancy.
