What is flatmate.com?

flatmate.com is a dedicated website aimed at helping you find a suitable flatmate, or suitable accommodation if you are looking for somewhere to live, or maybe even a short stay.

Our story

We started in 1998, by chance when a friend of our founder called to ask if there was a spare room in his share house.

As there wasn’t a spare room at the time, and internet access was still quite scarce, John set out to help his friend.

He went straight on to the internet and typed in flatmate.com, thinking that if there was going to be website to match flatmates, that would be it.
