How do I search for a roommate on Facebook using the RoomSync application?

Setting Up RoomSync

All new KSU housing applicants should have received an email to their Kent State email address with a link to access the RoomSync Facebook application. Simply click the link within the email to get started.

If you did not receive this email or cannot find the email, please email housing@kent.edu to request that the email be resent.

You will not be able to connect to RoomSync without first clicking on the link in the email from Residence Services (if you try to access directly from Facebook, you will be asked to provide a passcode, which is embedded in the link previously mentioned). If you are still having difficulty accessing Room Sync, please contact them directly at 352-327-4061.

About RoomSync

The Department of Residence Services is pleased to announce its recent partnership with RoomSync, a roommate searching tool that utilizes Facebook to browse and search for possible roommates. Only new KSU applicants to housing have access to use the RoomSync application.

RoomSync will allow you to search profiles of future students depending on what information a person has made public, such as television shows, books, activities and so on. If you do not have these fields public in your Facebook profile it is likely other students may not be able to easily search for you. There are also some basic personality questions as well as questions about roommate traits you’re seeking, very much like what you already submitted on your housing application.

Officially Selecting a Roommate

If you already requested a roommate on your KSU housing application you do not need to take any further action and it does not mean there is a problem with your previous request. We are announcing the roommate search tool for all our new students to use and connect with other future KSU residence hall students.

To officially request a roommate you still need to make the change in your submitted housing application with Residence Services by visiting http://www.kent.edu/housing and selecting the link that reads “Change Your Application Preferences”. More detailed instructions on how to formally make the change to your application after requesting a roommate through RoomSync are available in the RoomSync application via Facebook. Roommate requests through RoomSync are unofficial and the application is simply a tool to easily connect you with other possible roommates. You are able to make any changes to your previously submitted housing application without altering your original application submit date.
