How it works

TheRoomLink works a bit like a dating site - except instead of matching people & people, we match people & properties!  We're a profile based platform that delivers matches directly to your email inbox.

BEGINNER'S GUIDE TO THEROOMLINK

TheRoomLink is different to any other property website out there - and the way it works is completely different too.  Read the Beginner's Guide to TheRoomLink to understand how it works.

 

RENTERS

I am looking for a room to rent

TheRoomLink website visualsIf you’re a student, professional, couple or senior looking for a room to rent or looking for student accommodation, you should complete a Renter’s Profile on TheRoomLink.  This is a short online form where you tell us what you’re looking for, so we can send you properties that match your requirements by email as they are registered.

Why TheRoomLink?

What makes TheRoomLink different to advertising websites & classifieds

We are a matching site.  Each time someone registers who is looking for a room to rent in your area, we will:

  1. Email their details to you; and
  2. Email your details to them

You'll continue to receive daily emails as new people register - until you've found your match.
