Our Beginning

James and Owen had the idea for Roome in 2020 whilst both studying at university just as they were about to enter their placement year. With the start of the pandemic, the issues of finding good housemates and accommodation for students continues to grow. Working closely with the University of Surrey Students Union, James and Owen brought forward Roome’s launch date so students in Guildford could find student housemates and student accommodation to assist them in what had been a very isolating start to the 2020/21 academic year.

With support from the University of Surrey Students Union and Surrey Student Enterprise, Roome entered the market and in our first 6 months assisted over 1,000 Surrey students in searching for housemates and accommodation on our exclusive student platform!
