Bungalow's Meet & Greet™ Chat Policy

At Bungalow, we prioritize safety, fairness, and respect for both current residents and potential roommates. Our Meet & Greet™ Chat Policy reflects these values.

We expect all current residents and potential roommates to be responsive and respectful while interacting with each other to create a pleasant experience for everyone.

By becoming a part of our community, residents agree to follow these guidelines. Failure to comply may result in losing the ability to participate in Meet & Greet™.


  • Respond when the chat starts*

  • Answer potential roommates' questions where possible

  • Make a decision before the chat ends

  • Demonstrate integrity and politeness

  • No profanity (even in emoji form)

  • Be inclusive of all backgrounds and personalities

*If a potential roommate does not receive a timely response from the household, they may be automatically invited to join the home.


Make sure you have notifications turned on, check to make sure Bungalow emails aren’t going into Spam, and move the Bungalow app to your phone’s home screen.

💬 Keep it responsive

No one likes hanging by a digital thread, especially when trying to find a place to live. We expect homes to respond to prospective roommates and keep the conversation going.

👍 Keep it respectful

Have an open mind and give everyone the opportunity to get to know your home. Make a decision with your roommates in a timely manner so the potential roommate can either move in or move on. 

Be curious about everyone, be empathetic (you've been there too!), and consider asking any of these 13 essential questions.
