October 23, 2014 DormChat announced VC funding, an upgraded iOS app, and a new Android app. Like almost any good social media, DormChat will first only available on college campuses. So, how do you get DormChat for your college campus?
DormChat is geosocial, meaning it works with other users in a particular area, in this case, 1 mile. 125 users at each college must install the app on their phone in order to get Dormchat unlocked. In order to sign up, you must have a .EDU email address at the corresponding college.
Once 125 users have signed up to DormChat at a single college, the app becomes available to use.

As seen in the screenshot above, after a new user registers, they are encouraged to unlock DormChat faster by sharing their progress via Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.
