Cardinal Group Partners with RoomSync to Enhance Roommate Selection Process with a continued commitment to DE&I
DENVER, CO – February 1, 2023 – Cardinal Group, one of the largest providers of student housing property management in the nation, announced today a partnership with RoomSync, the leading provider of roommate self-selection software for the student housing industry. RoomSync will provide roommate self-selection software for a portion of the Cardinal Group Management portfolio of over 60,000 student housing beds.
RoomSync is an innovative app that allows residents to choose their own roommates without fear of rejection in a private, inclusive environment. Residents can search for potential roommates using lifestyle criteria, academic majors, social media presence, shared interests, and compatibility scores. This specially-designed tool empowers residents to choose a roommate who fits their lifestyle rather than relying on the outdated process of manually assigning roommates based on basic questionnaires.
Currently, Fair Housing Law does not protect against LGBTQ+ discrimination in every state. In light of this, Cardinal created an award-winning Safe Space campaign to support and welcome all LGBTQ+ residents, staff, and prospects in our communities. A vital part of this effort is providing a comfortable, safe environment for residents to choose with whom they’ll share space.
In addition to a powerful toolset of roommate matching features, RoomSync’s infrastructure fosters diversity and inclusivity through the use of gender inclusivity tools like roommate matching preferences and personal pronoun options, support for service and emotional support animals, ADA and WCAG compliance, and support for multiple languages.
“Creating an environment where residents are happy, healthy, and successful is our primary focus as providers of living spaces for students across the nation,” says Jenn Cassidy, SVP of Student Housing Operations at Cardinal Group. “Choosing RoomSync, a roommate matching partner who shares this goal, will deepen our company-wide diversity, equity, and inclusivity measures and offer our residents the foundation they need to thrive.”
This partnership will also strengthen productivity and performance for community teams, as RoomSync is a system that seamlessly integrates into existing workflows and provides a host of promotional benefits while reducing the workload involved with roommate matching.
“We have been fortunate as a company to help millions of residents across the country find confidence in their home life, and we feel privileged to bring this benefit to even more residents through our partnership with Cardinal Group,” shares Robert Castellucci, President at RoomSync. “We founded RoomSync based on the principle that the power of roommate choice facilitates rewarding and engaged experiences for college students, and we are thrilled to partner with a management team who shares that sentiment.”
