We make Off-campus Housing easy!
At RoomChazer, we feel like off-campus housing could be really easy and enjoyable if it was a tiny bit more organized and trustworthy than Craigslist and Facebook.
So we’ve been on a mission to build the Airbnb of Student Housing to bring minimum standards and some transparency to the industry! Imagine having access to verified listings, verified roommates, an official contract, and a network of local Housing Advisors who can give you insider tips and make sure you pick the right place and right roommates!
We are not backed-up by investors yet, we are a small team, and we need your support and constructive feedback to continue improving our platform and our services.
“We are creating a network of great places and great roommates to make off-campus housing easy, transparent & reliable!”

A Word from the Founder
I was born and raised in France and came to the United States as an international student to study civil engineering at Grossmont College. That’s when I got the idea for my first company San Diego Student Housing. I had sadly realized that Craigslist was a terrible place to find housing – too many crazy people, no rules, no shame, total lack of morals and respect.
With the success of San Diego Student Housing as a small local company, I decided to shoot for a bigger goal – creating the Airbnb of Student Housing – so that students all over the World can find a great place with great roommates all online. That’s how the RoomChazer project got started!
The main challenges so far have been working with landlords who are not always pro-active and with roommates who have very different expectations. But I’m confident that by providing more transparency, more accountability, and more professionalism, RoomChazer is on the right track to change the way off-campus housing is done!
Thanks for your support!
