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 3 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.
Hey there :) I'm DaHye, a third year BA/BBA ANU student originally from Korea, currently majoring Arabic language, minoring Japanese and Middle Eastern Asian studies. I will be returning to Canberra on 16 Feb, and I'm looking for a share house with fun and cool people to spend the rest of my 2yr Canberra life with. A coffee addict and casual runner, neat and organised, enjoy some light beer/soju during dinner. I have stayed in share houses while I was in Morocco and Japan (stayed in student residence during first two years in Canberra), and haven't had much issues with housemates so far. I'm not a super loud party person, but I really enjoy listening to people and have a chill conversation :)
Fun, tidy and easy-going, I'm a bit of a goofball, I love music and books and art. I've been in many share houses over the years and I will always do my part when it comes to keeping the place clean and respecting the space of others. I enjoy/need my quiet time and may have quiet days, but also love to sit around with a beer or glass of wine and have a chat. I have a pet cat who is very good with other animals and warms up to new people quite easily, I promise you'd love him. I'm from a small country town in Central West NSW but have lived in Canberra for almost a year now, studying and working. Won't be studying this year but will be working. Would love to find a pre-existing place that accepts pets or team up with some people to form a new share house. Ideally would like to team up with 2 guys similar in age who are cat friendly and looking to live in the inner North or South of the city. I have a lot of furniture that I can bring along. In my down time, I usually spend time in the garden, going for walks, or reading and I love hitting up Canberra's jazz bars and live music scene for a drink and/or a dance. I will wait up and watch GoT/Stranger Things with you each week, share my chocolate (sometimes) and show you silly youtube videos.
Hi! I am just about to move to Canberra from Adelaide to start a Graduate position. I have lived in shared houses before and have never had any issues. I am a neat and tidy person, always cleaning up after myself. I enjoy spending time with my housemates socialising but I also know that some quiet time is needed. I have an interest in fitness and healthy living.
I am a 5th year student at ANU and have just returned from 3 semesters overseas. I am a very independent, friendly, relaxed person. I like doing my own thing but also very much enjoy socialising with others. Easy-going and adaptable :). I will be heading back to Canberra in mid January so am available to see the house and meet the housemates from then :). Thank you!
I'm an IT professional moving from Sydney to Canberra for work in mid March. I'm looking for a place to stay. I'm good with cooking, cleaning and fixing things around the house. I'm a non-smoker and non-alcoholic. I'm an honest and responsible person.
Hi, my name is Lachlan and I'm a local Canberran looking for a new share house as I begin working full time as a young professional. I'm ideally after an apartment and considerate/tidy housemates to share it with. I've lived the share house life for the past four years in Canberra and enjoy hockey and relaxed drinks in my spare time.
I am a post-grad student who's joining ANU to study clinical psychology. I get along easily with people and am regarded by friends (and flatmates in the UK where I did an undergrad at St Andrews) as fun & easy-going. While I am gregarious by nature, I respect personal boundaries. In the same token, I'd love a flat environment which is friendly, but also allows for personal space.
Hi, I'm Hugh, a 24 year old honours student at ANU. I'm just looking for a nice and friendly sharehouse to move into this year! I spend most of my time writing this nasty thesis and working at community legal centres but when home, I'm always keen to relax and hang out. I'm looking to share a place with clean, respectful and friendly people! If you're an easy-going, respectful and friendly person, please get in touch!
I am a 26 yo male from Thailand, recently graduated from ANU. I am a clean, easy going and respectful to others. I mostly keep things to myself but don't mind a casual board games, movie or grab some drinks. I like to play badminton and cycling.
I'm a 22 year old from Adelaide who is moving to Canberra in late January for a one year contract in the Australian Public Service. I completed my Construction Management degree recently and have previously been working in Local Government/Council. I'm quiet and easy to get along with and my interests include photography, computer gaming and being outdoors.I cook occasionally, sushi is my favourite dish to prepare. I'm a tidy person who doesn't smoke and enjoys an occasional drink. I fly over on Jan 30 and need to find a place to live by mid Feb. I'll also need parking options for my car.
I am from Newcastle, NSW. I moved to Canberra at the start of 2016 to study music at ANU. I am 19, currently studying vocal performance and French language and culture at ANU and am about to begin my second year. I also work singing teaching and performing. I enjoy spending time with friends and family, reading, watching tv/movies and listening to music (of course). I love the outdoors and going out to gigs/concerts/restaurants as much as I love a quiet night in. I am a non-smoker and I only have furniture for my bedroom. I am very respectful of privacy/personal space and I try to be as mindful as I can when it comes to noise and cleanliness.
Hey all! I am an international student from Hong Kong and will be studying at ANU. I am moving alone so I don't know anyone in Australia/Canberra. I am a respectful and down to earth person who is a bit quiet at first but can be fun to talk to when I get to know a person. I like watching movies, reading, listening to music, napping on a beach, exploring new places, eating different kinds of cuisine, local street food and having a few drinks with friends. I don't smoke and I don't have pets. I am a tidy person and don't make noise. ***My preference: I would love to live with people who are friendly and tidy, preferably if you are also studying at ANU (please feel free to contact me even if you are just looking to team up). Flat-wise I prefer a place within walking/bicycles distance of ANU, or with easily accessible public transport nearby directly to ANU. I don't mind sharing bathroom but I prefer to have my own furnished lockable room in a neat and tidy house.
I'm moving to Canberra from Melbourne to start a new job in the public service. I'm excited to meet new people and explore a new city! I'm friendly and laid-back, and like to do my own thing at home, but also enjoy socialising with flatmates. I'm neat and organised and in my spare time I enjoy reading, going out to concerts and netlfix!
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. :)
Hi, My name is Manoj, 30yrs, Software Engineer. I am moving from Melbourne to Canberra for a work assignment and is looking for a place close to civic.

I will be arriving in Canberra on 5th Feb. As I am in Melbourne now, I wont be able to do an inspection but happy to do the paperwork online if required. If it sounds good to you, do let me know please. Cheers
Hi! I'm moving to Canberra to start an APS Graduate position (full-time). I'm easygoing and quiet but sociable. A big fan of live music, red wine, cooking, reading and watching lots of TV/movies. I also enjoy hiking and snowboarding. I'm happy to go out, stay in, share a meal, chat, or relax by myself and give you space :) I'm tidy and organised, and by all accounts easy to get along with. Looking to live with 1-2 other people in an established sharehouse or to setup something new! I'd like to complete my move by Feb 13th but I'm open to moving from the start of February.
I’m Haynes, 23 years old, and from Melbourne! I’ve just landed a full-time job in the APS and I’m moving to Canberra in January. As it's my first time living in Canberra, I’m keen to explore new venues/bars/restaurants and see what the city has to offer. I'm a very respectful, tidy and happy housemate who loves to be social but can also respect others personal space. I don't have any pets or dependents & I'm interested in securing long-term accommodation. Things I like: - Food festivals - Films - Good coffee (basically a pre-requisite to living in Melbourne) - 80’s music - Reading - Hiking/jogging - Cycling Ideally I'm looking for my own room in a friendly house. I’m interested in a long-term rental close to the city or universities – but I’m flexible. Shoot me a message, I’d love to hear from you.
Hi, I'm Kai and moving down from Sydney as a grad in an economics related field. I love to check out cafes, listen to indie and jazz music, read, and play board games (I have a growing collection that is just asking to be played). I'm also learning German and French. I'm keen to hang out and socialise, but I'm equally happy relaxing at home. I have shared happily with flatmates for almost a couple of years now. I'm friendly and keep things in a clean state. Looking for a share place that's pretty central in Canberra. Please feel free to contact me!
I'm moving to Canberra for a full-time public service job. I'm looking for a share house in the inner north. I'm flexible with move dates, but I want to have a place before I start work on 6 February. While I’m an active and social person, I’m also a considerate housemate. I’d like to live in a social house where we occasionally enjoy a shared meal/drink/Netflix binge but also respect each other’s space. I currently live in Sydney. I can quote episodes of Broad City, IT Crowd and Arrested Development pretty much line for line, if you're into that kind of thing. I like hiking, reading, live music, podcasts, yoga and good food/coffee. I also love cooking. I’m always looking for people to eat my baked goods so that I don’t eat them all.
I'm a full-time student moving from Brisbane after just finishing degrees in Engineering and Science at the University of Queensland. I'll be starting an Astrophysics PhD at the Australian National University (Mt Stromlo Observatory) in March. I'm very chilled out, mature, tidy, not easily annoyed, enjoy having friendly chats, and exploring all that Canberra life has to offer! I like to keep the house clean, and am very respectful of others' personal space. I'm also pretty light-hearted, and enjoy socialising and having a laugh. I'd be most interested in living with other like-minded students, but also enjoy interacting with all different types of people.
I am an older professional coming back to Canberra to fulfill a 6 month contract with an Aust. Govt. department. I am a mature, clean, non smoking male, I am willing to help with chores round the house and will be travelling home to country Victoria once a fortnight. I am unlikely to have a car in Canberra so I need to be within walking distance of a bus stop. I would prefer to find a place somewhere near Civic.
Hi everybody! We are a couple travelling the world to learn more about living in other cultures and meeting new people. We're searching for jobs in Canberra. The plan is to stay here for at least a few months, maybe longer depending on whether we find a job and how we like it. We are used to living with roommates since we had a house in Belgium that we shared with three international students and we always had the best of times. We are used to taking lots of responsibility in the house. Don't hesitate to send us a message to ask us more info! Greetings! Eline & Niels
Hey there I'm Arshia and I'm from Melbourne! I'll be starting my Masters at ANU in February so I'm looking for a private room in Canberra to stay in for this year (though I'm willing to stay in places with shorter or longer leases). I have a pretty laid back personality and I like living in a clean and tidy place so I will happily contribute to chores to make sure it stays that way! I'm also a really social person who loves nights out (or in), or even just chatting every now and then over drinks :) Look forward to hearing from you!
I'm moving from Sydney to start postgrad study at ANU first semester this year - I'm flexible with my moving date. I'm a mature individual, and I keep everything (but my sock drawer) tidy. I'm easy to get along with and I'm always up for a chat/being social, but am happy to keep to myself in the house if that's the go. I love sports, particularly netball, and am looking to get involved in a new club/team once I move. I'm a music fan (the non-snobby kind), and love to attend big concerts as well as local gigs. I'm open to different locations, though as a Sydneysider who has spent her life traveling and commuting to everything - I'd love to take advantage of the size of Canberra and live somewhere central.
Hey! I’m Sarah and I’m looking for a room to rent from mid-late Feb (dates flexible) when I move over to Canberra from Perth. Looking for a lease preferably at least 6 months with an option to continue, or to team up and start a share house.
If you're looking for a fellow 21 y.o male student at ANU, look no further! How would I describe myself? Mmmm. Curious, nerdy with a hint of fun but sensible. Needless to say, pays bills on time and subtly appreciates sharing stories about our sometimes mundane but necessary unfolding of life. Oh, I'll never shy away from occasional midnight scrabbles! Or Monopoly, yeah, monopoly.
Hello! 24yo here about to move down from Sydney to start a role in the public service. While not really into partying til late, I love meeting new friends and will gladly have some fun over food, drinks, board games n movies. Most often found chilling on the PC/laptop and listening to music. It's my first time moving interstate but i've previously lived a year in Japan. I respect people's space/privacy and always clean up after myself. I love travelling and visiting museums and national parks - pretty excited to see what Canberra has to offer so will probably spend weekends out exploring when not taking a break at home. Personality-wise I am told that I'm friendly, easy-going and positive. Flexible around moving-in dates however the starting date for my full-time job is in the second week of February. Preferred length is stated as 6 months but is really flexible. Always happy to team up and establish a small sharehouse of 2-3 like-minded people also!
Professional looking to start a share house with one or two other people. Prefer 30+ and who are clean, tidy and trustworthy. I travel for work a bit so am not always home. Will be relocating to Canberra in Jan 17. Yes, I am in my 40's (insert sad face here) but I am very sociable and am down to earth and love to be able to have a laugh with my roomies. On the flip side am respectful of needing space and downtime. I stay fairly quiet during the week as I am an early starter for work, but do enjoy a wine and a chat, especially by the end of the week !! Love to cook and am happy to share a meal or go to the local ...
Originally from Sydney and going into my third year at ANU studying commerce :) I've just come back from exchange to Canada and am looking for a nice and friendly house to stay for my next year of uni :) I'm tidy, respectful but overall a very laid back room mate!
Hi! My names Mik, I’m 26 years old and I’ll be moving down to Canberra from Sydney mid-March as I’ve sold my soul to the Australian Public Service :). I’m looking for someone to team up with for a 2-bedroom place with a garage. I’ll be moving out of my current share house with most of the furniture so moving into a furnished place/room in an existing share house isn’t an option for me. On the upside, you won’t need to worry about a fridge, dining table or couches! I’d describe myself as a clean & respectful housemate who’s laid back & enjoys good company. I work full-time as an electrical engineer and outside of work I’m into rock climbing, scuba diving or just chilling at home with a good book. I also dabble in guitar & piano and am always up for a jam. If you'd like to know more about me/are interested in teaming up, feel free to shoot me a message.
We're a Canadian and Australian couple looking for a place to rent for a few months in Canberra. We love cooking, travelling and staying active... on the couch... with netflix (though Alaina is a keen swimmer and Ari is a keen runner). We are social and enjoy meeting new people, but also value a relaxing wine night. We're looking for a place with flatmates who are friendly, chill and happy to have two new faces around.
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 :)
Hey everyone I'm Sunil and I am due to start work as a public servant in the beginning of February in Canberra. I'll be relocating from Perth and am looking for a place to stay in as soon as possible. I don't have any specific preferences when it comes to housemates and open to stay with anyone. A little bit about me, I enjoy watching and playing sports including tennis, soccer and cricket and up for a jog or a gym session throughout the week. I am working towards being an okay cook (currently a little hit and miss with my cooking) and am willing to do the occasional cook off with my future flatmates. Apart from sports and cooking, I am a bit of a book worm, enjoy playing board games as well as watching TV shows and movies on Netflix and I do the occasional binge watch when I have the time. I am clean and organised and am very considerate to privacy and downtime when needed. I don't consider myself an extrovert but nonetheless like to socalise and spend time with friends rather than spending all my time at home. Lastly I would like to have the occasional dinner and drink with future housemates and I would love to be friends rather than just another person living on the premises. Hope to meet some of you soon!
Just finished high school from Melbourne and looking for a place to stay while studying at ANU. I love cooking, I'm into sport and love going to local gigs for live music. I also have a car so already planning weekend adventures around Canberra.
