Tinder has announced the launch of a new matchmaking service called Tinder U today. It’s meant for students attending a four-year college or university. Since Tinder’s core feature is to help you find people you would like to date, it’s no surprise that Tinder U is essentially a dating service as well. However, it can also be used to make new friends and perhaps even find a study partner.


It makes sense for Tinder to focus on the college campus given that a vast majority of the service’s users are between the ages of 18 and 24. A .edu email address from an accredited university is required to use Tinder U and users also have to be located on campus when they sign up for it.

Once they restart the Tinder app, they will be logged into Tinder U automatically. The swipe mechanics are the same as they are on the regular version. Those who want to date outside their campus are covered too as Tinder U will let them swipe on students at nearby schools.

This feature is currently rolling out on iOS devices for students at a four-year college or university in the United States. The service has not yet said when this feature will be rolled out to the Android version of the app.
