New App Finds The Perfect Roommate

A new app can help college studenst find that ideal roommate.

RoomSync allows incoming freshman and transfer students to look for compatible roommates.

Pennsylvania's Temple University Associate Director of Housing Sean Killion says,  “They can engage with students online. They can look at their Facebook information, their profiles. And they can get a good sense of who they are living with prior to making that commitment.”

Officials say students who use the app perform better academically.

Temple is one of the first schools to use the app. Three years later, it’s grown in popularity. Out of the 3,500 freshman students coming in this year, 1,500 used the app.
