Welcome to Lifetopia; fully-hosted, web-based, plug and play platforms serving the entire range of student roommate and housing needs.

Lifetopia Roommates

Lifetopia Software solutions for the unique student housing needs of colleges and universities.

Lifetopia RoommatesŽ provides a controlled and secure environment for your students to self-select compatible roommates. This user-friendly, web-based solution allows the housing department to easily set the roommate search and match criteria, while empowering your students with the freedom to connect with and select roommates efficiently and safely. By offering this school-sanctioned service within your existing website, your students are able to meet and select roommates with confidence. In lieu of the time consuming process traditionally used by housing offices for roommate assignments, Lifetopia enables students to now determine for themselves the roommate or roommates with whom they choose to live – reducing stress and uncertainty, and significantly enhancing overall student satisfaction. Lifetopia HousingŽ is an optional enhancement to our roommate solution. It centralizes your housing department's entire available housing inventory into a single online marketplace, enabling students (particularly those who may not qualify for university housing) to view all available housing options and make their selections directly within your branded website. Our easy and efficient inventory management system allows your housing department to set the criteria for sanctioned housing, including whether to allow private landlord listings and other off campus residences to be included among the offerings to students.
