The principles of minimalist design are evident in much of the technology we use today. This is especially the case with mobile applications. The most successful of which attempt to minimize the amount of user input needed to provide users with the information they are seeking. Although many mobile applications use data gathered by in-system activity such as a GPS to minimize input from users—some systems require user input, such is the case with roommate matching. This study utilizes the RoomUP mobile application as a testbed to define minimal criteria that can be used to gather user input and produce a compatible roommate match. Participatory design with prospective student users is used to reduce the number of variables and provide recommendations for a minimalistic user interface. The resulting prototype is then used to verify that it meets design goals and supports a satisfactory user experience.
