Roomdock is a house sharing and apartment rental website designed to support the specific needs of international students. The idea was born through the vision and experience of its founder, Smith Tanny (“Smitty”), a former foreign exchange student from Indonesia. Think of Roomdock as your all-in-one platform for an international room sharing experience. Unlike the dozens of other boring apartment-sharing websites out there these days, Roomdock brings a fresh vibe to the complexities of international travel. We won’t waste your time with complicated forms or unnecessary details—our goal is to connect you with the best roommates as easily as possible. Want to avoid smokers? No problem. Strictly vegetarian? There’s an option for that. Don’t like early mornings? You can even sort by roommate work schedule. It’s not a science, but it’s pretty darn close. Smitty’s personal experience is the backbone of the unique value that Roomdock offers. From getting an education to finding a job to applying for scholarships, he wouldn’t have gotten far without the help and support of the host family that took him in when he first came to the United States. After establishing himself, he wanted to pay it forward by providing the same support to whomever needed it. As he himself learned, cultural exchange isn’t just about sharing your home—it’s about sharing your life.
