Find a Roommate
Are you a current Penn rising sophomore, junior or senior looking for a roommate for the 2018-2019 school year? Join Residential Services' private Facebook group to find a roommate!

When you request to join, an administrator will verify your status as an active Penn student and admit you to the group within 24 business hours.

You can write a post about what kind of room you are hoping to select and what you are looking for in a roommate! You can also search posts for others looking for the same thing as you.

The Find a Roommate group is available through the end of the Inter-House application period and is currently closed.
