When it comes to dating, the Tinder app is currently the most popular online platform for meeting new people. While Tinder provides a variety of potential suitors with just the swipe of a finger, browsing through endless options and arrays can get overwhelming.

Thankfully, there’s a new app in town that has recently announced its launch, just in time for the new school year. If you’re familiar with the Tinder app, you’ll get a kick out of Tinder U. This new version of Tinder is specifically designed for college and university students. In order for the app to work, the user must have a .edu address and be geolocated on campus.

At its launch, Tinder U will be available to iOS users who are enrolled in a four-year, accredited, not-for-profit school. In terms of aesthetics, Tinder U differs from the original app with a badge depicting users’ universities, which is displayed on their main profile page.

If you’re swiping from your college dorm room and looking for a hookup who is enrolled in your school or a university nearby, Tinder U will be your new best friend! Users will not be limited to only one Tinder platform, however, they’ll be able to bounce from the regular version of Tinder to Tinder U whenever they please.

It’s not difficult to understand why Tinder would decide to target the college and university population. Countless students are swiping on Tinder daily, so segmenting them off and making an app that’s centrally focused on their campus life makes total sense. The app is also marketed as an ideal solution to finding platonic studying partners or someone to hang out with on a boring day.

Whether you’re looking for better safety options, increased chances of having mutual friends with your matches, or just want to avoid being catfished, this app is just for you!
