About Us


Why does trying to find a roommate suck?


Anybody who has used a roommate finder of any type in the last 10 years knows that.

We set out to create an app that is easy for you to use, safely connects you with somebody you want to be roommates with and has people using it across the country at colleges, big cities, small cities and rural areas.

RentHoop will change your world, we're sure of it. Your roommate may become your best friend, best man, colleague or introduce you to your significant other that you will spend the rest of your life with. That is the kind of impact our app can have and that is thrilling for us.

Meet our team that launched RentHoop on May 2nd in Seattle, Washington to an amazing response.
