Students can access over thousands of internships and entry-level jobs all over the country for free. - We specialize in student internship housing. There are so many services out there that focus on helping students find jobs and internships, but very few that help them find a place to live during their job or internship. Some ways we are able to help students is: 

  • Secure Marketplace - we background check and ID verify our users and verify all listings
  • Social Media Integration - users link their Facebook and Linkedin accounts to their profile, which allows them to find connections or common interests with other users
  • Short Term Flexibility - users don't need to sign a year long lease, just book a room for the duration that you need it
  • Safe Payments - Roomi helps to facilitate payments so that both the mover and the lister feel comfortable with the transaction
