When you join Roost you will be prompted to create a Roost account and roommate profile. This should not take more than a few minutes.
After you sign up you will be asked to verify your account. This helps keep Roost safe and includes uploading a photo of your government-issued ID and passing a background check. This usually doesn't take longer than a day for us to complete. Once your account is verified there will be a blue checkmark on your roommate profile.
