Claire, Female, 25yrs

Looking in: Acton, Narrabundah, Deakin, Hughes, Braddon, Bruce, Turner, Ainslie

I'm moving up from Melbourne as part of an APS graduate program on Jan 30th so will be looking for place from then. I like hanging out, brunching, keeping active, playing sport and occasional netflix binge in my spare time. I like to think I'm easy going tidy but not OCD, and fairly chilled - don't hesitate to message if this sounds like your type of flat mate.

Hi! I'm Kat and i'm looking for a place to live in Canberra in February 2017. I'm moving down from Queensland for a graduate role and am hoping to live close-ish to the city with a few other people (male or female). I will be staying in accom provided by my department from Feb 4th - 21st and will be looking for a place during that time if you'd like to meet in person. I'm easygoing and a go-with-the-flow kind of girl who likes to socialise, but I also like my alone time and respect others need for privacy. I am clean and tidy (but not too obsessive about it) and love to cook! In my downtime I like to work out and explore new places. Ideally would like to live with someone who can be a respectful housemate, but also a friend - the kinda people down for Mexican Mondays, GoT sessions and a drink and a chat on the weekends :)

Daniela Perez, Female, 30yrs

Looking in: Dickson, Braddon, Acton, Lyneham, O'Connor

I'm a PhD student at ANU. I spend most of my time at uni during the week, but like to relax and hang out at home at the end of the day. I'm a pretty flexible person. I like a bit of both worlds, partying or relaxing. Nothing that isn't planned ahead can't be done. Just let me know in advance about a party or people staying over and I'll be fine with it. Plus, I also want to be able to have friends over at times. Regarding tidiness, I'm not obsessed by cleaning, but I don't like dirty toilets for example. I like to clean the house once a week and don't tend to leave dishes in the sink for long. I prefer to share a house with another female around my age. I'm also fine living with couples. I need a place with walking distance to ANU that fits in my budget (up to 200/week) Get in touch with me if we match ;) Cheers, Dani

Looking in: Kingston, Dickson, Canberra, O'Connor, Turner, Acton, Lyneham, Braddon

Hey yo! Joel here! I'm originally from Malaysia and am looking for a place for me to settle for at least one year while I get my masters done. I'm studying Masters in International Law in the ANU. I will also be working and studying to be admitted into court. Hence, I will be fairly busy in 2017. In terms of being a flatmate, the thing I value most is cleanliness - I like keeping things tidy and clean, especially the bathroom. I respect privacy and hope to receive the same. Having said that, I am a rather social person. I love the idea of sharing a conversation over a meal, or even perhaps doing something interesting over the weekend. I'm pretty open minded and respect diversity in any form. I may occasionally sing in the shower though, so I guess that is something to be aware of. =)

We enjoy cooking, keeping active, reading, exploring, eating out on occasion ... Overall, we are very easy going and accepting and are looking forward to a new adventure in Canberra!

Looking in: Griffith, Kingston, Turner, Campbell, Acton, O'Connor, Ainslie, Reid, Braddon

hack | nerd | activist | queenslander| bakes too much | exercises too little | listens to music that scares and horrifies G'day! I'm moving down from Brisbane for a new job in Civic. I studied law and politics (like everyone in Canberra) and I'm yet another hack! I'm a pretty excellent baker and love cooking (so I need a pretty decent kitchen). I was (and probably will be again) a Scout Leader. I like video games, comic books, bushwalks, canoeing, comedy, live music and getting involved with social activism. I'm really social, love having house parties and going out, and I'm a festival junkie. Usual caveat: I'm not a needy housemate, and I respect my housemates' privacy. I'm also looking to get a new DnD campaign up and running if you need proof of my crippling social dysfunction. I'm after housemates around the same age (20-30), who are keen for the occasional house party but are most of the time just okay listening to me laughing with my headphones on like a madman. I'm pretty independent having had my own places since I was 18. I also drive and I'm handy around the house.

I'm a 24 year old student due to start postgraduate studies full time at the ANU. I will be at the university on a fairly regular 9-5 schedule, and will pick up a few evening commitments, too. I like to keep busy during the day on weekends, going for day hikes or drives, meeting up with friends, or just catching a movie or coffee. I like to keep a clean and tidy space, and would appreciate being able to relax after keeping busy at uni, but am also looking forward to meeting new people. I would be happy to meet people as friends, or just to share a space that is courteous and respectful.

Hi everyone! I'm Kristina from Denmark, where I usually spend my time studying anthropology. I have gotten the opportunity to spend the last semester of my BA-degree at ANU, which I am very much looking forward to! But - this means that I need a place to live - preferably as close to ANU as possible, but anything has my interest. I will be in Canberra to look for places from the 1st of February - my studies start on the 13th. I have been living with roommates in different variations for the past four years, so I consider myself accustomed to this way of living - and I love it. I enjoy living with other people, discussing the worldsituation over dinner, a glass of wine, coffee or whatever. I like being social with my roommates, but - of course - also appreciate my privacy, and respect others :-) When I'm not studying, I usually spend my time hanging out with friends, doing yoga, enjoying political and cultural discussions and/or experiences, and back in Denmark, I also have a part time job as a bartender.

Hi my name is Jedd, I moved in from Adelaide shortly before Christmas. Im working a really steady roster at JBHiFi in the city centre but I'm also studying VFX and Animation in Watson, and undertaking an internship in Acton at the Film and Sound Archive, so a place near the city or with good access to it is a must right now. I'm very clean and polite. I can cook for a group and I come with a staff discount at JBHiFi if we need to upgrade any ammenities. I like to get out a bit, either for drinks or the odd walk/jog, when it's in the budget I wouldn't mind joining a gym either. As far as hobbies, I'm big into both awful and good movies, comics and video games, I spend a lot of time illustrating too! I love pets if you have or want to have any, I have history as a pet/house sitter so people can vouch for me if you need it. I don't sweat the small stuff so I doubt theres any chance of friction living together. I'll be out of the house a fair bit anyways with all my commitments, but I'd love to be mates with whomever I lived with If you have any questions for me feel free to call or text me, I'm working till 5:30 most days though so apologies if any of my responses are delayed at all. I check my emails at lunch too! Cheers!

I am about to start my PhD program in Ecology and Evolution at the ANU and have multiple interests. I will be landing in Canberra on 11 February. As I will have a range of fieldworks in the second semesters, I am not sure if I will be able to keep a place in Canberra from July on yet - but let's say I am looking for a long term accommodation. Despite the science, I like to spend some time developing my abilities in languages, music, literature, arts and dance as hobbies (sporadically). Currently, I have been embracing the practice of physical training weekly. Although I was raised in the countryside of Brazil, influenced by a traditional culture, I identify as an open person and love to learn from new experiences. My friends usually describe me as an independent person, with a nice taste for music, creative and communicative, however, with a funny need for being at least some time alone each day. I like travels and learning about other cultures from usually strange people. I never do anything that I do not feel secure/ready at doing, thinking about the consequences. I am tidy, easy going and respectful. If you like (the amazing) Brazilian food, we can share some in the weekends. :)

I've previously done my BSc, Honours and started a PhD, but that fell on its face so now im looking to change it all up and do the arts degree I always wanted but my parents didnt :D Im not only into science but I love ancient history, anime, gaming (consol/pc; roleplayed a smidge), horror movies, languages (Francophile), politics and a bunch of other stuff. I enjoy great conversations (w/wo drinks/cheese platter), even if its just me listening to someone else's area of expertise. Im respectful of others privacy, I know i like my alone time just as much as any one else. Dont have much to bring with me, bed (queen; but can get double), bookcase (with books and trinkets), ps3, desk, chest-of-drawers if needed. But given limited space, I can condense.
