InstaRoomies is a website that introduces a revolutionary way of matching college roommates. Our goal is not only to match college roommates and help sustain their relationships but to also help them potentially find their future best friends! Having a college roommate is an essential part of every college student's experience. Schools/Organizations should not have to feel frustrated and inconvenienced about the process. Students definitely shouldn't have to worry about whether or not they'll like their roommates! InstaRoomies is here to take care of all that! We hope to work with schools and organizations across the country and encourage everyone to use this practical and convenient system.

"I really enjoyed working on the algorithm to match the potential roommates. We used the distance formula to get a range of numbers based on compatibility. If you were 60-80% similar, you would be matched, someone who is similar but also different as your roommate."
